    I'm having my local shop also do mine tomorrow. Just make sure they use stainless steel staples.

    Brad,
    it's just not that hard. Go check out this link. There is tons of good info, including the staple size, and the CORRECT type of gun to use.

    I'm always amazed how many folks that aren't mechanics will blow up $10K machines with mods, but get scared of some cloth and some staples. Covers are relatively cheap and "redo's" aren't that painful. The results are almost always great the first time.

    Still waiting on my Jettrm seat cover to come. All black with red strip in back. I think going to see how much local dealer will charge me. If 50-60 dollars it is worth it staple gun would cost me that. Also if they mess up I can say to them What you do! I want a new one
