Honda ATV TRX70 Gets a Seat Repair and Seat Cover Upholstery Pt.3

160 ratings | 7050 views
The original seat cover and foam on this 33 year old Honda ATV TRX70 is in need of repair. Follow along as I replace a missing section of seat foam and replace it with new high density foam. Once the seat foam is shaped and looks good, we can then install a new seat cover. This is my first time doing upholstery repairing and covering an ATV seat and I am very happy with the finished product. Hopefully this gives you the confidence to tackle this job. ⇨ SUBSCRIBE to Brandon Lund DIY Builds: https://www.youtube.com/brandonlund THE TOOLS & GEAR I USE 🔴 https://www.amazon.com/shop/brandonlund Any commission earned from the above Amazon affiliate links all goes towards helping to support my channel.

I can hardly wait to see the finished product. Will there be a part 4? I have a 1986 also we took it out of storage after 15 years have pretty much what you have done gone through gas tank Rebuilt the carburetor and it was amazing after all these years it started up on the first pull. We bought new tires and luckily the plastics are great on mine my only regret is I recovered the seat on my own and I did it in black so after watching your video I think I’m going to pull it off and do it in the blue. Today I will be working on the new graphics it almost looks brand new. excited to see what yours looks like. Thank you for the video
Brandon Lund (28 days ago)
Thanks for the support Sherry! There will be more episodes, I got sidetracked on some other projects but I expect to be back at it again real soon. I wish my plastics were in better shape. I'm still working on sourcing parts

This is really interesting because I have an elderly Honda quad bike that needs some work. Please can you make videos for the rest of the restoration? Thanks ! Pete

What grit is the flap wheel sanding disk?
Brandon Lund (2 months ago)
60 but i'm going at it with a light touch because it wants to bite into the material. 120 would probably be easier to control though

An electric carving knife makes a huge difference.
Brandon Lund (3 months ago)
I bet it does! I was wishing I had one!
Garett Anderson (3 months ago)
You can sculpt with a carving knife. It cuts like butter and super clean cuts. And you plunge cut so you wouldn't have to cut all the way across the seat like with the cross cut saw.

Just saved one of these little quads from next to a dumpster. A little gas and three pulls got it running. Want to go through it and make sure itll be good for my 3 yr old so very interested to see how yours comes out!
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
Congratulations! These little 4 wheelers are getting hard to find and a lot of times the prices are very high. It sounds like someone didn't know what they had. Thats awesome you found it by the dumpster. I have a new project to unveil this week and then we will get right back onto the build. Thanks for your support.

Way to go , Nice JOB !! Is there something you can coat the staples so they don't rust ?
Tank Soldier (4 months ago)
archenemy24 Years back we use to fix blown speakers with nail polish and a dollar bill cut to fit the rip areas
archenemy24 (4 months ago)
I was gonna say a coat of lacquer, but nail polish is pretty much it.
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
@Smooth Move BRILLIANT! that's an awesome solution. Thank you!

clear fingernail polish
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
Good call. I never gave it a thought. They might make a galvanized or stainless staple. I could go right over what is there. I like your thinking!

Amazing job!! Definitely learned some new techniques. Thanks for the video
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
@free1 been there done that! On the right side just behind the round airbox the might be a silver sticker that says Honda and the year. The VIV is right in that area stamped into the metal and it runs vertically. I had a hard time finding it too! UPDATE: If you go to this video at 16:00 you can see the sticker was telling you about. Below that vertically you can see where I wiped the frame. The vin is there. https://youtu.be/eNhWM_aMm9k

You did a excellent job on that seat! I give credit where credit is due. I am a senior and have my own Shop wood and welding. It's nice to see the younger gen. Doing and trying things out. How else will you learn. Good luck in all your projects.
Brandon Lund (4 months ago)
Thank you very much Joe. It is always a little intimidating at first digging into something you have no experience with, but then I tell myself, "it cant look any worse than it already does" LOL
