So I did it  :-D

The dryer is my new best friend  :-D

I stapled, used the dryer, stapled some more, used the dryer, pulled LOTS of staples out to make it perfect...well as perfect as I could get it being I have no upholstery experience. Even went out and bought a new wide crown staple air gun since my manual one wasn't good enough.

I tried to follow everyone's suggestion by putting a few staples in the front, then some in the back and working with the sides but I couldn't get it to work. I couldn't get the horn up against the foam.

So I started at the front very narrow horn, and worked my way back....and here it is.









Hopefully, the seat holds up and stay this way.

Thanks for everyone's help!

after last nights fiasco, you should feel pretty good that you defeated it.

Yes, but it took a lot out of me  :-D

If it stays like that I'll be happy.....

Warm weather is around the corner.
