68' seats

My seats need to be redone. I have seen a video on DIY installation. I do most of the mechanical repairs on my vette but I'm not sure how difficult doing seats would be. The covers and foam are expensive enough and I was quoted $350 locally for installing. Anyone with opinions or experience doing this job?

I can't offer a definitive opinion but I was going to try doing mine myself. I figure if it didn't work out I could always take them somewhere to get done. It does require some special tools though. You can buy them from most Corvette vendors. My understanding is that getting the covers stretched/properly tight is the toughest part.

If you end up doing yours let me know how it goes. I'll let you be the guinea pig. :D
