    Bought a set of TMI seat covers from Classic VeeDub and spent countless hours searching the internet for the know how on replacing all the components and fitting the covers... I decided to ring a local upholster to see what he would charge just to fit the covers to the frames and he quoted $600.. So i thought F%$K that... i'll give it a go:

    forgot to take photos of the old seats - here's the drivers i think:

    everything off - Frames were good:

    Can you move to Mount Gambier and help me do mine please. I just took 3 layers of seat covers off and removed some carpet squares that were in the. Now im sitting on springs. But its been the best since weve owned him.

    Contact Cam from Volkstyle. I found him great with sourcing tmi covers, the Dacron and the siesal padding. His support and instructions made the job easier too.

    Greet colour there , look awesome!

    Hey Cam,

    Just out of interest (as im now going to do another pair of seats when I find them)

    What do you charge for the padding?

    Thanks
