Does anyone know how to wrap car seats? Not kid car seats, I mean actual seats in the car.

We just got a classic car and I'm all excited b/c it's "our project" since the last car SO had was a race car that I knew nothing about. But now it's all new to both of us. So it's a lot of fun.


But anyways... we got some Spanish Blankets and some old, torn up VW seats, and my job is to wrap the seats. Do any of you have experience with that, or maybe your husband does? Or can you possibly find some pics online for me? I've been searching and can't find anything. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places..

Thanks!!

I've never done it, but this is the link my bro used to help him wrap the seats in this old truck he got, so maybe it'll help? good luck

hm... I wonder if he just did a blanket wrap or a legit leather wrap? I did get that I need some spray glue. I wouldn't have even thought of that! Do you know what I mean by the spanish blanket thing? I know I've seen it done I'm just not sure exactly what it looked like. And I seem to remember it being on a bench seat, like an old vw bus...


Thank you very much :)
