I have an issue where my seats do not appear to be symmetrical from side to side. These are bucket seats.
I have went back and forth on if I should make a new pattern or reuse the original seat cover pattern. I went ahead and followed the tutorial on custom seats and marking old patterns and both methods are great and I can see a need for both of them. Naturally I was thinking that I could reuse and trace but with them appearing to be so far off symmetry, I'm afraid to use this method. I have traced my seat foam edges and seams and everything looked pretty good to me. I was planning to cut half of the seat pattern at the mid-line and fold over and trace the other half so they would be symmetrical.
I have since cut out my pattern and compared it to the original and they are really quite far off. So far off that I thought maybe the originals were the way to go but I'm just not sure.
Attached are a couple pics of the old pattern compared side to side of the seat bolsters. The tracing is just the other side but traced to better see the differences.
Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Mike aka; go4bas.
