Can you drill out the rivets and replace them with countersunk style bolt heads and nylock nuts with washers?

No snap ring, I ended up cutting it off and putting in a zipper on the new one, no amount of heating and pulling was working but I’m sure somehow it was pulled on.

I’ve tried and didn’t get it ….but it seems like it’s the only plausible way. Maybe a hour in direct sunlight will soften it up enough to budge. Hate to be the guy at the factory putting these on a day :j :grinning:

I can’t see any way to remove the armrest cover without cutting it, no hidden zippers, Velcro or overlaps. I’m stumped

I was just going to type in what Malcom just said, sometimes I like to move the topstitch out from the seam a bit, 1/2” seam allowance gives me that extra bit you sometimes need

I’d walk before it starts getting complicated, unless the customer understands there a good possibility there will be extra charges depending on how they fit.

You can use a stapler and pull them out as you approach each one or keep them close but not on the sew line and remove them later. Double sided tape may work but I find staples to be easier.

I agree a 138 or larger thread would look better, I wouldn’t lock the stitch, instead pull the top thread to the back side and tie them together for the start and the finish. That way you won’t be able to tell where you started or finished.
