has anyone had to repair the rusted out hog ring clips on their seat frame(s)? I have a few ideas but non proven. Here are two pics one of the damaged area and the other a possable fix using some old seat springs "weaved" through the seat. Please give me any advice

Grab a mig welder and patch the areas up with fresh metal, clean and paint. Once the upholstery is on it's not like it's going to show anyway.

They are attachment points and I have extremely limited access to a welder if any. I may just through bolt some eyelets it just scares me to have anything come loose once the covers are installed. Thanks for your responce

If you decide to use eyebolts, just use locktite and lock washers. Once in place, there is no way they'll come loose. Or, take it to a welding shop and have it done for maybe $20.

Par4n1, where in Virginia are you located? I am in Northern NC, Henderson, right near the Va, line just off Rt 85 if you are close enough to drive to me, I will weld them up for you for free.

Thank you Tiger13. I found friend of a friend in Richmond and we (he) welded some strips cut from a 4x4 electrical box cover. The project took all of 10 minutes and worked perfectly. Thanks agin for your offer
