I have made a copy of this post, and put it in pdf form so I could print it if I ever get the time to try this. I tried to attach the file but it would not load, file size is to large, 463 kbs. If anyone would like a copy, send me a pm and I can email it to you.
I would appreciate a copy of this, if you would, and thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org

There's another Missourian who has been doing this for some time. Darrell Darst of Madison, MO. I believe his contact info is still here: http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/Specia ... index.html
He also advertises in Red Power magazine. Send him your seat pan, he'll prime/paint/cover it, then return it to you. Think it's $125 or there abouts.
While I was reupholstering mine, I wondered about the process years ago at the factory (whether in Louisville or elsewhere) when hundreds of these seats were turned out every week. They must of had some hydraulic pressing machines or something similar to close the lip and keep both hands free. Would have been interesting to watch.
