P.S. there was some powder coat involved as well.

    Can’t wait to see the outcome. I had a yellow one exactly like that, with some very minor separation in the same place. I just sold it a couple of months ago. I always wondered how difficult it would be to get that glued-down foam and upholstery off. I guess you’re going to show us. :)

    Dana, I just finished taking all of the foam and glue off, went pretty easy but I will do a full story soon.

    I just recently went through this. I expect that you will show me some genius way to remove that foam and I will want to slam my head against my keyboard. I haven’t used the penetrol yet so I’m interested to see how the powder coating is utilized. Non-chrome part of the base? or shell? Looking forward to the update.

    Chris, I don’t know if it’s genius but it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.

    I was thinking about tackling this on a couple of mine in the future, excited to see your experience with it!

    Chair restoration aside, I love these close up pics. The look like modern landscape paintings.

    I just picked up a chair that needs to be redone like this. I’ll wait to see how you did it before attempting it on my own. :)
