I have installed the Door panels and kick panels and need to get the Hip Panels installed before I can finish the interior. The question I have is do you roll the material over and nail it and then pull it and trim the excess off. Seem to have a good amount of extra material and not sure what to do with it. Thought I should ask before cutting.
Thank
Gerald

Gerald. I think You are on the right track. I did the same way Used contact cement to hold material in proper position than white stuffing to get smooth I will try to post pic but I'm not good at it. Good luck

I got them on today. The wife starts telling me "you could have done this and you could have done that" I just smiled and said I Love you go ahead and take it apart and make sure it is done and the back of the seat is covered before next weekend. She is the best wife I ever had

All joking aside it turned out real nice and hope to have seat covered this week. Maybe the top on this weekend.
