help removing seat cushion leather..

Guys, I would like to experiment with placing more soft foam cushion on my drivers seat where my behind goes. Does anyone know how to take off or strip back the leather from a non-sport seat? I know how to take the seat back off to expose the seat back but that's it. If someone has a TBS for this, that would be most excellent. Thanks all. My rump is killing me!

This is *not* a job for a novice....you have about a 110% chance of effing-up the seat unless you know what you`re doing.... go and consult with a real auto upholstery shop.

Regards,
Bob

Yeah, you're right. What the hell was i thinking..... My motive was to save money but then again, I would probably screw something up and have it cost me more than if I were to get it done right from the start. Thanks Bob.

That's an option. The OEM sheepskin is something like over 300 bucks. Pretty expensive.
