    They may be, but they shipped to me from Texas.

    Nope. Baby pandas. Their skin is more supple.

    What tools and supplies do I need to replace my seat covers? This year my original drivers side cover has finally started to pull apart where the cracking in the leather was. It funny the passenger side has no cracking so I guess it was the driver getting in and out of the car that made it crack.

    Besides a wrench to remove the seat from the car you will need a "Hog Ring Plier". It is a plier with a groove in the jaws to hold the ring easily so you can close it. You will also need a supply of the "Hog Rings". They are rings that come open and you close them with the plier to attach the seat cover to the frame.

    Definitely splurge the $20 or so for the specific hog ring pliers. They make the job infinitely easier, especially since you’ll be clamping dozens of the rings. Also consider wearing sturdy gloves when snipping off the old rings as well as installing the new ones. The hog rings are extremely sharp, and will easily bloody your hands.

    For cutting the hog rings, I skipped the $20 amazon special hog ring cutter and ordered this:

    https://www.knipex.com/index.php?id=...28&artID=32478

    Figured I'd rather have quality $45 multi-use cutters rather than a $20 one-time use. They're scary powerful for their size.

    No complaints using the cheap hog ring pliers though.

    Those look pretty heavy duty. They have to be cutting steel hog rings.

    I ordered a set of hog ring pliers. They all looked pretty cheap so I just ordered on Ebay since Amazon seems to be slowing down on their shipping.
