    Just had the seats redone in my 59 Bel-Air, this spring. The 59 Impala speaker grill and rear arm rests were installed in about 1992. New Interior A.jpg New Interior B.jpg Lair 59 A.jpg

    I wanted to use fiberglass bucket seats instead of the usual molded plastic drag seats. I finally found some at Aircraft Spruce. They are only 3.5 lbs each, not cheap at $85 each but they are wider than the narrow Speedway buckets. I modified a cheap pair of Summit covers. and added a little egg crate foam under them.

    Had a local shop upholster a Glide Engineering frame for my '39 p/u. Hopefully they'll be able to do as nice of a job when I get around to the upholstery on my '54 Ranch Wagon IMG_3837.JPG IMG_3842.JPG 01616_6RntPBOIIPN_1200x900.jpg

    Ronny just sent me a pic of his new custom fit frame all upholstered and looking very surf shop appropriate. Thanks Ron!

    I followed a post on here by Hellfish on redoing your own seats, and here are the results on my first try

    Hi 51504Bat, I live out in your area and I have been looking to get a bench a seat done for my 40 sedan, I was curious where you got your seat done for your 39p/u. It came out really nice!

    500 bucks. I provided the Glide Engineering frame but not the foam. Ramirez said they would rather use their own and I'm glad I took their advice. The Glide foam wasn't cheap and I really like the way the sculpture of the seat came out. They do a lot of big truck upholstery repair for dealers so it took them a while to do it between their regular customer jobs but it was worth the wait, IMO.

Required a super thin back as the leg room is a premium in these trucks. Very nice and appropriate look for his ride. Thanks for the pics Glen!

    Here are the seats for my Comet rebuild, they were ‘64 T bird seats that my upholstery guy did in the stock ‘64 Comet Cyclone pattern. The center inserts are perforated, the silver piping and the emblem are exactly what the stock Cyclone seats had.
    I adapted the Comet tracks to the T bird frames.
