Finally got around to covering the other seat back on the 280z this past weekend – Kris was down to help me out.
After taking off the old ’77 280z basketweave seat covers we found something interesting…
the driver side is padded! an additional layer of foam covers the hairy jute-like seat cushion.
Here’s Kris setting the hog rings, getting them in place. Again, honestly, you don’t to worry about getting hog ring pliers – we used them for a whole two seconds for a job that could’ve been done using regular pliers.
Stretching a seat cover can be difficult work. It was a fairly warm day, so we were working with optimal conditions. Really, it’s the seat pattern that was just a touch too short for the liking.
But pulling, stretching and team work prevailed. Tucked and pierced the n0n-barred flap under the barred flap, just like last time.
Now to get those seat bottoms done and the 280z will start to look good.
