Are You Afraid To Recover Your Own Truck Seat? Here’s How Easy It Is To Do On A Squarebody Chevy Pickup

My 1987 Chevrolet Crew Cab Dually is an amazingly clean truck that makes me happy each and every time I drive it. Sure, there are TONS of things I’m planning to do to it, but it’s really impressive just how nice the interior is. The rear seat looks like it has hardly been sat on, and the front seat has some very small tears just starting near the edge of the driver’s side of the front bench seat. I’m torn, no pun intended, on what to do with the interior as a part of me loves the stock bench seats front and rear and part of me thinks that stock style buckets and console up front, with a Suburban rear seat installation would be the best all around package. The front buckets do make it cool although I am pretty sure I’d want to make some changes to the factory center console configuration. The rear Suburban seat installation I’ve got in mind would make the rear seat fold down flat in the rear to make hauling stuff, and Otis the shop dog, even easier. I have both the front buckets and Suburban rear seat, along with a factory center console, but all would need recovered and restored before being ready for installation. Or, I could just get a front seat upholstery from LMC Trucks and slap that on and be done.

Of course LMC Trucks does have all the upholstery for making my front buckets, console, and rear Suburban seat look like new as well, so what the hell should I do?!

I’ll figure out what I’m doing, but whichever option I choose I promise you I’ll be reviewing this great video from Kevin Tetz showing exactly how to reupholster a front bench. The same methods going into redoing the rear bench, or the front buckets for that matter.
