Every seat done on every make and model are seat covers. Velcro holds the tucked parts and of Course Hog Pins hold the areas that move....They are all seat covers, slipped on and and pinned wear needed.
The only other way would to do them the same way you do your Chair at home and that is several pcs to put together...each arm, sides, back, skirt, under cushion, seat back etc and that because of padding,
cushions etc and use staples. Seats have been done in Two pc slip on for years....They are more durable and less labor cost. if you fit Fabric or Leather like you do Home Furniture, on Metal frames with light weight foam and tons of open areas,. Where are you going to staple, using to many
Hog pins will do nothing but rip the Material from all the movement....For fun on it...take your seat out of jeep and set up on bench...will take you 15 mins to get off....it's crazy to see how the framing is made and how the sides look full until you lift them off to see it is just a metal curved rod shaping the look of a padding seat...
If you look in the Build sheets that list every part on a model down to the sticker, they are listed as a cover and are slipped on like a cover during the build
Look at this old video and how each working does their part in 88 secs...
2003-2006 truck seat...watch and listen to him say the whole front is held by one clip.
they are 2 seat covers each gets slipped on and tuck or pinned to hold under seat. VELCRO...lol
