    Just about any hand squeezed gun will work. Ber sure you use stainless steel staples.

    you definately need an AIR POWERED staple gun made for upholstery......heres one like the one I use.........If you are not experienced with heating, stretching, slapping vynil to get it tight with no wrinkles I would suggest taking it to a trim/upholstery shop. It should be cheaper then buying a staple gun

    Here is one that was posted on this site, I would prefer a Senco brand myself. Make sure you use stainless steel staples.

    Its easy. I used an air stapler and it works great. I've never installed a seat cover before and it was a piece of cake. Air stapler is the way to go.

    Hmmmm-I must be like the bumble bee--ya know it is said it wings are too small so it cant fly--but he dont know that so he flys anyway. Four years ago I used a hand squeezed stapler on my aftermarket MLine RXP seat cover--it is still tight--no wrinkles--and none of the staple have come loose. I will be the first to admit it would have be easier and faster with an air powered one.
