    Re covering a seat- what adhesive do you use?

    My GP1200 seat is shot so I removed the cover and noticed it was stuck on with some adhesive and also stapled. I've only done a few seats and all have been pretty simple stretch and staple... With the GP's the foam has body lines molded into the seat and they would get stretched over if I just pulled the seatcover material. I was thinking weldwood, only because thats what I use to turf with... What do you guy recommend?

    There is a detailed post on how to install a new cover....I think it was by HydroToys...he is in Arizona and has over 15000 posts.....I do remember he said DON'T remove the old cover...it is waterproof and your new cover is not!

    I'll look for the link.

    I think the search feature is almost useless....I remembered that HydroToys used an air stapler....I inputed STAPLER to find the thread....now how is a new guy going to do that??

    Sorry Bill, didn't mean to steal your thunder. I randomly remembered it was a sticky in the 'shop tools and tricks' section so I thought I'd post it up real quick.

    Looking forward to facing your Dawgs here in September

    thanks for the link, although I have some stock sheeting from a marine fabric store. Its not cut with the inlays and such for a custom fit, thats why I was thinking some adhesive would help lay down the fabric in the lower areas. may have to do some testing to see how im gonna go about this.
