Unit Garage seat cover

I've just taken delivery of my Unit Garage seat cover and tank belt - I pick the bike up tomorrow!

Unit Garage suggest maybe getting an upholsterer to fit the cover, but I think I'm just going to do it myself - it's just a few staples, right?

Has anyone else done it?

Any advice?

If you do it yourself please take pics. I am interested in the seat cover as well.

In the end I did the seat myself.

I actually just stretched it over the original cover and stapled into the seat pan (so I can remove it and the seat's stock again) - fits great and looks pretty perfect, really. Was very easy to do.

The tank and belt are different leathers, so they don't quite match colour-wise, but squint a bit and you can't really notice.

Overall, I'm pretty happy

Hmm... looks a little lop-sided in that 4th pic, but it's actually not!

I have the same brown covers, was disappointed the colour did not match the tank strap better but kinda happy with the result.
Why don't they do a cover for the hump pad!!! I have asked the question but so far no reply!! Strange really as when making enquiries re punching the set covers the responded very quickly.
