Something simple for my new project...
Just finished the seats in my Mercury. Way better than the wooden bench is had been using!
I'm a sucker for a good lightning bolt.

Very nice stuff guys... More?
San Diego Chargers foot ball team here in the states use the Lightning Bolt as their logo. Im not so sure they are so loved these days as they are talking about moving to Los Angeles. I still like the Bolt look though!
just for grins, straight out of the disco 70s, my velour '40 seat
That looks comfortable. '70s or not it just looks comfortable.
Hey Bob, Get off of here and get back to work on my seat.
I can't take credit, the previous owner did them just before I bought it but I like the job he did. They are cloth and leather as well as the door panels.
Gotta come up for air once in awhile Tom and see what the cool kids are doing!
Damn it is! like an old broke in recliner. The missus has back issues, hated the Model A we had before this one but thinks this rides like a cadillac. Doesn't get hot in the sun or cold in winter. I don't care if it is outdated, its in good shape and at 72 I want comfort, not style.
Sometimes it is better to enjoy a ride then for everyone else to.
My Model A seat, started out as a third row mini van seat.
Here are some seats and interior we did in a 55' last spring. The front seats are buckets out of a 65' Chevelle factory rear springs.
Tim,I really like the looks of that seat. HRP
Here are some I just did for a 52 W
illys aero lark. He is trying for the 60s look. Jack
WHAT ARE YOUR SEATS OUT OF? THANKS
Mercury Mountaineer, fortisfords
Pic's in progress on my avatar 39........using stock seats with bolstering only in front seat......will post finished pic's in several weeks........using marine grade material........
These are going in my 3W
'34 Pickup - heavily modified mid '80's Ford Ranger seat frame
I like the 34 Pickup seat.
Plaid and Sage Green vinyl on a Bengals 32 Ford HotRod seat frame.
Geez Jim that will make you go blind.
How bout a barber chair?
Thanks for the ideas.
A few pics sent to us by a happy F100 owner. He had one of our flip up frames upholstered. Anything else new in the seat upholstering world as of late?
Now that is classy - reminds me of a style we used in the late 70's on early sixty cars
