Reupholstering seats. Any tips?

Hello,

I've purchased a set of new leather seat covers from http://www.928leather.com/ His quality of workmanship is fantastic. I plan to recover the seats myself. For those of you out there who have reupholstered Boxster seats, I'm just curious for any tips/tricks you may have that can help the process along. Thanks very much!

I haven't dealt with that company's products, but with similar ones.
What I found extremely beneficial was having a small steam cleaning machine.
Steaming the leather introduces moisture to it and makes it expand a bit allowing for an easier install.
Once the humidity dissipates, the leather becomes taught and professional-looking.
Good luck.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
