Has anyone recoverd their tractor seat?

Sure, quite a few times. It's usually a molded process that they're made by. Similar to how we make IP pads (dashboards), armrests & doors in the automotive industry. I usually use a hest gun to separate the vinyl from the foam (what's left of either...), then use the vinyl to make a pattern. Then allow about 1/2" around the pieces for the new seams, join it, 'deck sew' all the seams (this 'flattens' them) then spray automotive adhesive to both parts. Then CAREFULLY put them together. Straighten out the old clinch molding, Tap it the together, spray it with a black vinyl paint (allow to dry..). Then put it on the seat, trim to fit. Voila! (Now you see why I don't do it often! LOL) JP
