Here's a couple of clips that I have.

These clips look like they might work, and the glue idea is a good one.  I shall try to locate those clips from the information printed on the box in the pic.  If not successful I shall be back and ask for more assistance

Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it.

On seats like that you can also use tacking strip and staple the covers on. tacking strip is a hard rubber 1/2" wide by 1/4" thick by the yard that is used on convertible tops by the auto guys. I've riveted it onto several motorcycle pans, tractor seats etc...

I ran out on the last tractor seat I had to do so used 1/4" plywood to finish. It was tedious cutting a 1/2" wide piece of plywood the shape of the seat---but it works.
