    Seat recovering tip

    Just spent several hours recovering both my GPR seats and frustrated with the t50 staple gun and stainless staples i used the old school stainless steel trim screws with washers in some of the hard to get spots for the staple gun. It gives a cool riveted look and grabs the marine vinyl with authority. #8 screws with washers, 8 bucks for 50 at home depot.

    good tip ! but you have to get the long nose pneumatic stapler! and ditch the t5o! you won't need to "screws around"
