    I have found some upholstery I would like to try and redo my truck seat in but before I purchase it I need to know how much to get. I would just go out and measure the seat but I don't have access to it.

    Full bench seat in a 1949 F-1 Pickup.

    Material for the top yards?
    Material for the Bottom yards?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The best way is to measure the actual seat. There will be a bunch of small pieces that you'll need to pattern . Remember to keep the nap running in the correct direction on both bottom and back or you'll get a mismatched color, or will appear to be mismatched.
