    Here is the seat in my Galaxie. This was my first attempt at upholstery.

    Thanks, this was my first attempt at upholstery.

    There are a few mistakes, but only I seem to notice them.

    Not to hijack, but what kind of car is that? I like the instrument panel.

    These are the ones that I put in my roadster. They are tractor seats, slammed to the floor with a 2" rake to recline them towards the back of the car. I had to cut them both down in width to get them to fit side by side.

    Mine made from Chevy Lumina APV rear seats.

    These will go in my '28 coupe.
     
  22. The upholstery in my Little T, most of upholstery work I've performed over the last forty years has with been with things like motorcycle sidecars, race
    cars, or hydroplane racing boats with a few easy jobs like truck seats thrown in. I'm a long way from being a professional, but I still find it easier
    doing it myself than paying someone else to do the work. I still have my
    original Consew machine that I purchased back in 1972 and it still works like the day I bought it.

    Here is a shot of my plywood, foam, seat for my 1930 Ford pickup. It has two different foam firmness to provide the feel I wanted. It is lower than stock, and provides more leg romm than the original spring/upholstered seat cushions.
