Since a few members showed interest in the post I did on how to recover a lawn tractor seat I thought I would start one on how to recover the "Bowl" or "Dish" style seat pan that some lawn tractors such as (Bolens and Simplicity) used starting in the 1960's that featured a padded seat with a cover that is held on at the outer edges by the outer edge or lip of the seat being crimped down on the material.
Please note this information is provided as is - use at your own risk.
Please use proper safety protection such as safety glasses, masks and gloves when working on seats and work in a safe manner - remember a second of thoughtlessness can result in a lifetime of suffering.
For this post I will be using a metal seat pan off of a Bolens 900 garden tractor - what can I say I am a Bolens addict.
Here are some pictures of what a typical seat looks like after fifty plus years - reasonably solid metal pan but very little left of the cover or padding - and how it can look after being recovered.
