If you have an electric welder ( stick, MIG or TIG), you might be able to do it at home although I would not recommend it unless you are sure you are up to it. Chances are the seat bosses are too out of round and need to be machined anyway. Be sure and have the base of the bosses straightened as well as the sides. Then be sure your seats are taller or they won't be proud enough. Typically, proud seats flow better and, of course, get you more compression. You can very often see where exhaust has been getting under the seat. You have to have the right setup to get them back in plus all the measuring tools. It not for the faint of heart!
