    I have a guy on 110 in Farmingdale that did mine. He is actually an airplane upholsterer. Let me ask if he would be available to do the install then I'll give you his contact info. He does outstanding work and charges a fair price considering it was an unusually small job compared to what he normally does.

    On the other hand if you have a compressor and air stapler I wouldn't mind lending a hand to get it done. I have a heat gun if needed.

    If your confident enough in our skills to get it done, I don't mind borrowing my uncles gun.. I've never done it before so it's really all up to you. Haha shoot me a text and well chat about it

    Make sure you buy stainless staples.
    The hardest part is pulling all the old staples.

    Dont use stainless they will rust, you need the monel coated. Recovering seats is super easy. I just recovered 8 skis this week. If you dont wanna waste time removing all the old staples, just cut the old material roght up against the exist staples with a razor or sharpe knife. Itll leave a strip of fabric and the line of staples. You cant just staples right over the old ones...

    You must have got ahold of some cheap china stainless if yours rusted, I have stainless staples in my seat with no rust at all.
