Unhappy WTB: Seat

Dropped my 03 919 while walking it through a u-turn in my step-mom's front yard. Unluckily the seat got caught in the gate and tore it up. And now it's held together with black duct tape. Also my pride got banged up pretty good.

So... does anybody have a seat they want to part with?

Did just the cover get torn? If so it's not hard to recover it. You can do it yourself or take it to an upholstery shop.

Some of the foam got torn out, but I put it back in... like a puzzle. I was also looking for a seat with 4 cargo hooks, but am not picky.

So how much does an upholstery shop charge for something like this?

Hi. If you end up finding a new one, I'd give you a few bucks for the old one.

I never priced it myself, but I know a few others here have had an upholstery shops work on theirs. I'm sure they can also repair the foam and even add upgrades such as gel inserts, etc.. to make it more comfortable.

You can definitely find cheaper, but this was about $450 through Sargeant in Jacksonville, Fla. They use the stock pan.

For now I think I should just keep it simple...
The stapler link doesn't work anymore. What kind of staples and staple gun would I need?

I used an air powered staple gun like this one

20 Gauge Wide Crown Stapler

It uses T-50 Staples, which are pretty common. I would go no more that 1/4" long as you don't want then poking thru when you sit in it.



I tried a hand operated one but it wasn't powerful enough. That seat tray is pretty hard plastic.

You know what...

I'm going to do it. Even with the one-timer tool, it'll cost maybe $60. That's much better than getting a seat. My dad has a compressor, but I won't get a chance to go by his place for several weeks.

I don't like buying tools for 1 use, but for $20...


EDIT... anyone want to buy a used pneumatic stapler? lol

Excellent. It really isn't that hard, just take your time. When you are done you will have a new skill and a new tool and enough vinyl leftover to recover it again in a few years.

One more option. A little more pricey but looks really good.
