Installing your Hydro-Turf seat cover by Watercraft Werks

Upholstery Installation

Please read through instructions before starting.

We recommend that someone experienced with upholstery install this cover using ¼ inch long stainless steel staples and an air powered staple gun. Galvanized staples can be used as a second choice, but may rust.

It is preferable to apply your Hydro-Turf upholstery directly over the old upholstery. Trim away any bunching of the old material on the under side, especially at the corners. However, the old upholstery may be removed completely if it is torn or has seams that will show through the new upholstery. You will also want to remove the old cover if the seat is wet (allow to sit with cover off until dry).

If a chunk of foam is torn out, you can use contact cement to glue a new piece in place. Sand it flush to match existing foam.

If possible, the new material should be warmed in the sun to increase flexibility and ease of installation. A blow dryer can also be used (be careful not to get material too hot). Sharp corners should be rounded with a file, and/or taped over with duct tape, to prevent cutting.

Align the Hydro-Turf Upholstery Kit to the seat/sides/chinpad contours and put 1 anchor staple at the back of each contour alignment point (corners and curves). Once the kit is correctly aligned and anchored, continue to tighten and staple kit securely to the under side of the seat. Cut away excessive bunching at corners. Extra staples can also flatten out bunching. Finally, trim away any excess material.

On some seat models, there is a strap. If so, follow these steps: Remove the strap via its screws or rivets (remove rivet by drilling off rivet head and pushing remainder through old seat). Save any mounting hardware for re-installation. Either: a) Cover the strap with the vinyl strip enclosed in your kit. (It should be sewn on using a heavy-duty sewing machine and synthetic thread). b) Install the original strap as is. c) Do not re-install the strap.

On some kits, a dash cover piece may be included. Applying some contact cement to this piece may allow you to get a better-contoured fit.
