We go to Ronald’s Upholstery Shop to watch him recover a motorcycle seat. He recovers our motorcyle seat with Slip Stop.
Slip Stop will hold you on the seat of the motorcycle and it actually stops you from slipping around on your motorcycle seats
I’m here this afternoon at Ronald’s upholstery Shop. We’re here today to watch him recover a Yamaha factory seat. With something he calls No Slip
As we talked the other day those are not stainless. No they’re rusty. My supplier sells stainless staples but, when I went to buy them, he said “Are you working on a boat that is going to be in the ocean?” And I said “no”
He said “There is no need for them” That’s his sales pitch on them.
Like I said if it’s plywood I figure they’ll last as long as the plywood. But if it’s good plastic seats, it would be worth putting stainless steel in them.
A lot of people will take and cut this vinyl on the outside of the staples and just pull it off and put a new one under here and staple over the top of the other ones. And you can do that but, I just don’t.
This foam looks in pretty good shape. Is there any repair needs to be done with it? It’s got one little hole up here, is there anything to fill that with?
I can glue a little piece of foam in it and grind it smooth, yea. I’ll have to let that glue dry. Spread it around a little bit with that
This is a contact, Right?
You glued that let it dry, trimmed it down with a knife or scissors? Clipped it off with a pair of scissors. Now, your fixing to dress it. It’s a different color but, it smooth.
What I’ll do I’m going to go ahead and just cut it. It’ll will be sort of big.
I’m not going to glue it. What’s the advantage of glueing it and not glueing it? If I glue it I can get this much stuck down, and just stretch it.
Stick and little bit more and stick a little bit more. By the time I get to the bottom edges. It’s on I’ll just take the edges
Let’s glue it.
and staple it down.
If you don’t mind let’s glue it then.
And if I don’t glue it,
I’ll staple it across here, and I’ll stretch it to the front. If I don’t do anything but glue it right down the middle
It’ll make it a little easier. All right let’s see I’ll just do it like this to start with.
Make sure I got enough to
You want to center it. Little short there.
Maybe I shouldn’t have put
Now that little hole that I fixed If you don’t fix that hole, and glue it it will show,
But if you don’t glue it it don’t show. It just stretches over.
The vinyl just stretches straight over.
This is called slip not?
Slip Stop ok
That’s what my suppliers name for it is. You usually keep this in stock? Well, yea sort of, yea.
It’s not going to stick. You didn’t put glue on it.
So I’m going a have to go ahead and
Can I hold anything for you.
I may need you to in a minute
Ok I’m not sure.
A hot sunny day that will make this thing fit like a glove.
That’s it isn’t it?
Ronald that is just awesome
