About to start on mine and hope they turn out that well. Are you using a tutorial or do you already know what you are doing? I am following on here.

Awesome, those are the two on here I have been looking at. Also looked at YouTube for vids but so far the two you listed have given me the most info. Just finally about to start on mine.
I didn't know that Google one was yours, I have been buying things from that list. Thanks for posting!!

Finally getting started on mine. The first piece turned out well but had to order foam so on hold again.
I see the steamer in the background. Is that a must to get a really good end product?

If the foam is in good shape but flattened you can use steam to re fluff it. Easier and cheaper than replacing the foam. I just finish steaming the last pieces. You can also use the steam to remove wrinkles, the s curved seat it really helps.

I got it of Amazon for $60?. I use it for my clothes to..;)

Buy a seam ripper, I finally started using it, really saves time taking the old covers apart..

Also I last time I used a small travel steamer, which is a little cheaper..

I will give in and grab one. I am thinking at this point I will leave the Captain's chair for a pro but that will be the last piece so I will see how it goes by then.

Already going at it with the seam ripper. Really nice once you get the hang of it. The poly thread makes it a little tough but that thing works.

I have a little experience recovering jet ski seats so I can really appreciate the amount of work that you put into those. Great job.

Jake, why don't you just move here in the winter time and stay with us at the house? We have you covered (and you have us re-covered).

Absolutely amazing work! You have any before / after comparison pics?

Thanks!

This was original viynl. It looked good in this pic, after we used totally awsome and vinegar to remove thick mold and dirt. Most seats had marks and small rips and the seams were beginning to split. Normally I'd sell it so I wouldn't mess it up but don't have a new boat lined up yet, I'll have to be clean this year..sucks.. Lol
