    Not really the answer to your question, but before they ship, I would make sure that these are the correct seat covers. I think the pictured covers are for the "base" bucket seats (with the seat back tray) rather than the sport buckets. Good deal though, if they are the right ones.

    Get some good side cutters, hog ring pliers and a bag of hog rings. I have only installed the fronts of a full kit. It's not that difficult, just time consuming. I just haven't had the time to do the rears and doors yet.

    Take pictures for reference as you take your seats apart and pay attention, they go back together exactly in reverse order.

    Thanks for the advices, I think I may go to Sears to buy the hog ring pliers and a bag of hog rings.
    I do think think about do the doors, but have no idea where i can order the leather for it, any idea??

    My kit came with pre-upholstered inserts, so I'm not sure.

    How'd they come out? I'm thinking about putting leather in mine. I'm in Boston too - I'd love to check them out.
