    Thinking it would be pretty sweet to be able to see what everyone has done for seating in their rides all on one thread. This jumping around through the complete history of the Hamb looking for seat ideas is kinda of cool and entertaining but very time consuming. With that said post up a few pics of your completed seats or as complete as they are going to get! Make mention of the Year, Make and Model of the ride please. The more of a variety the better. Looking for whatever is in use, no matter what it is!

    This could be a great tool for future builds and reference. Any takers? Lets see um! Show us what your upholstery Gurus have done for you...

    I thought it was going to be cheap but the seats and cushions added up quickly plus had to build mount brackets.

    Seats are from Speedway Motors.

    Check out our seat frame social group as well... http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/group.php?groupid=742

    In our group I also posted up a bunch of good seat links associated with Model A Seating. If you find a different link be sure to post it up there as well! Thanks

    There is a wealth of material here the issue is finding it thus the reason for starting this thread... When ya get a minute guys post up a pic or two of your ride's seating. Super custom or totally original we would like to see it! :D

  13. Bought these on a budget. Not crazy about buckets for my shoebox.but the price was right and the color. Good enough...for now. Also got a bolt of material with it for the rest of the interior.

    1956 Ford Thunderbird. The car had an old worn out solid white seat in it, I renewed it with the stock type white and green. Found a good upholstery guy here and supplied him with upholstery and foam.. he rebuilt the seat and it came out nice. I like the embossed section in the center. What I like best about it is the way it feels sitting in it, the foam is just right, not too puffy but nice and firm. Thanks to Bell's Auto Trim, in Plano, Texas.

    Finished in the car:

    Dodge Caravan rear seats, late 80's to mid 90's. If you look around you can find one that reclines and folds forward. Makes it easy for rear seat access.
