Has anyone here restored a Cub Cadet seat like this one? Any tips or advice, especially on re-covering the seat? Thanks.

I took my seat off of my 124 to a Professional Auto upholstery shop and had it done. I wouldn't even attempt trying to do a seat like that. I think it cost me $75 about 5yrs ago. Sorry I can't offer up any tips. Here is a pic of my 124 seat.100_4740.JPG

I know he had to put two small seams in it to make it fit right.

Wait! Not supposed to upholster a Pan Seat like that are you? ha!  They really have such a deal?  Would have figured most soft seats would have been squarish kind like later.  That don't look too much diff than one of those slip-over seat covers like in farm stores. Some have then in diff colors. NAH!  I never like looks of those either.  Looks like professional job to me too.  That steering wheel rebuild place in MN has ads now for seat rebuilding, even for GT's. Not sure what they do or type, might ask. Minkota or similar name, have to google. I have had wheels done there and good work. Should be ads in magazines too.

The outside part is attached to foam and the foam is attached to the seat pan. I was able to remove the blue trim. The seat pan looks a lot like the fiberglass seat that was fitted to some Cub Cadets. It looks like the only difference is that this one has four holes in the bottom of the seat pan (I guess they are water drain holes).
