Getting to Love Hog Rings - Part 1
Miata seats are asymmetrical just like a TR6 so there's
a driver's seat and a passenger's seat and the two are
not interchangeable. Make sure you mark the pieces
Driver or Passenger.
NOT just cut the old covers off as you will need to
refer to them during the re-upholstery process.
Ok.... the seats are apart
so how do you get the seat covers off? Well the first
thing you're going to need is something like this.
|Get a good
pair of lever action cutters like these,
because you're going to be cutting a hundred
or so steel hog rings.............
So let's start by flipping
the seat bottom over to look at all the little hog
CAUTION: When snipping
the hog rings, put a towel over them when you cut as
they tend to come violently flying out at all kinds of
crazy angles. I'd hate to catch one in the face or
worse, in the eye.
Part 2 is getting the
covers off of the seat back......more
