I received a pair of Series IV Seats today from a friend. I am planning on redoing the seat covers.
Does anyone have tips for me to make this easier. Can a novice do a good job on his own seats. I have done everything else on the car so I figure I might as well do the seats too.

If you can find a supplier that sells seat covers already stitched, replacxement foams, etc. it isn;t bad (I did my EType seats that way). However, if you must start from scratch (can't buy a kit), then probably best to take it to a good upholstery shop in my opinion.

I put the drivers seat in my car this morning just to test the fit. Way better than what I have. I can't believe the difference.
