ok i will try to help you out with your seats first since thats the biggest part and everything else needs a whole seperate how to kind of written up...anyways remove your seats from the car/truck and undo everything holding them in on the bottoms..some cars have staples velcro....whatever but basically the fabric is more like a seat cover over the foam....once you have the material off mark each panel so that you know what each piece is cut notches like a small V on the backs of the seams where its a little flap about 1/4'' every 8''s or so.....you will see what im talking about....this is very important...after all those notches are in take a seam ripper and bust all the seams....take each panel and iron it flat...now you have a template for cutting the new fabric out with if you want to keep the original upholstery design...typically i would pin the panel to the fabric and go around the edges with a chalk pencil...this always makes the new panel a little bigger but it doesnt hurt anything and bigger is always better in upholstery....if the new fabric has designs to it make sure you line up the pin stripes or whatever it may be before cutting...once all your panels are cut out align the V's you notched out to face eachother throw a couple of pins in it and go hit the sewing machine...this post is getting long so im going to cut it short here...any other questions just ask
