Ok, so I have found a set of high back buckets for my 69 eliminator clone. The seat foam will need to be replaced and new eliminator seat covers installed. Anyone done this or should I just take it to an expert?
I'm in the process right now. Just finished removing the original seat covers. Didn't expect to find so many hog rings to remove and this is going to be difficult to put the new covers back on. I haven't decided yet whether I'm going to attempt this or bail out and take them to a pro. At least I should get a better price considering I've removed the original seat covers.
I did a set once and swore I'd never do it again. The rear bench is pretty easy but the front buckets are tough to do properly. As Don says, you must have very strong hands and loads of patience. An upholsterer will typically charge around $100-$200 per seat for installing pre-sewn covers and new foam. This job is well worth paying the professionals to do.
