Wooooo Pat... not sure that blue carpet is appropriate? LOL

Dodge caravan rear seat used the frame but modified it a bit
Very nice guys! Thanks for posting up your pics. The whole purpose of this thread is to give a visual of what has and can be done by your upholstery Guru's. It helps with making that all important and tough decision on style and design. Some beautiful seats in here!
C-n-D, what carpet is that? Square weave? Wool? Nylon? and what color? Looks great!
The only thing that's finished.
Here's my seat.
@Elcohaulic those buckets actually have ended up in this little can of beans.
Still not nailed down, got to install some other pieces to see if we want to move them back.
A little back tilt can gain more room than you think, no need for setback.
Two pieces of 2x3" rect. tubing cut diagonally on the bandsaw produces four nice angled mounts.
Actually angling back is in the future. My back feels better when I am not too straight up. We'll address that on the build thread. The wedge came to mind but I have a weird build specific idea, check your PMs. LOL
These I put in my coupe, when I first got it running.
They came out of a econoline van. .
Second set I made from mid '80's dining room chairs, plywood base and thick pressed cardboard backs.
In my T Bucket.
My 63 Impala.
. Complete interior is from Cars Inc. with no complaints.
We’re anxious to show off our newst product... 35/36 Ford replacement spring inserts. Get rid of the broken down coil springs and replace them with Zig-zag inserts. These are original frames with the inserts installed...
Upholstered by Mark Lure in El Cajon, Ca.
My amateur attempt @ a '63 BelAir wagon:
wtf? pic didn't load. try again:
Wow how much time has passed since we made the move from SoCal to Mo.? Too much obviously!
Guess we need to give this thread a bump and get caught up on several months of your seat progress! We would love to see what your seats are turning out like?
Lets see um
Using 60 T-Bird seats in Miss Taboo, cut the tracks down to lower the seats so the top of the seat is slightly lower than the bottom of the window line.

Nice seat and the interior looks great also.
New interior in my 37 Chevy p/u I done in the spring
Here's mine in the 34 all stitched up
Lots of leather, trunk done to match and the area behind the seat. Smells as nice as it looks.
