    first decide what kind of seats you want bench or buckets, then ask if you want stock or retro , then decide what type of material, cloth or leather ect. after that pick a style you want to use. choose weather you want to use old springs or go with foam, then choose the foam type you want soft or firm, then start to rebuild seats , fix springs or shape foam into seat frame, then layout material your using to mark out stitching pattern, sow pattern and place on seat. as I was doing seat the pattern it changed several times also foam had to be recut to fit seat pattern iam going for a retro style and something a little different as to fit the hole car also because I am not doing a restoration I am working with a guy that has been doing upholstery for years and he is doing all the sowing on his machine hope this helps you
