Seat Concept

Hi, I recently received a seat concept kit. I've fitted the foam onto the base. My question, has anybody fitted the cover themselves. If so, what type of staple gun did you use. I can get access to a none air staple gun, but is this going to do the job ? or should I just take it to a professional ?

ive been upholstering custom seats for about 10 years now and most the time i use just a basic hand staple gun, you want a good heavy duty one

Thanks Retro. Great write up and finish. Definitely gives me more confidence in doing it myself.

Just one question. The 3 retaining loops seem very long. Almost doing nothing the length they came. Should I shorten these ? I was thinking of changing them for the ones that came with the original cover.
