Wish my first crack at it looked half that good! very nice. Thanks for posting up!
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.
I think '49 Mercury
a pair of 1932 Ford Sedan front seats I just sold on ebay for $1345.00...
Mine in the 55 wagon , fronts are heated top and bottom....for sale here:http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=692668
Even though Cruzr is my boyfriend, i have to say, i just love the interior on his Coupe
Some seats I've done over the last couple of months I'll post some pics up of some seats I've built in a bit
Sorry for the delay; O'Rielly Auto Parts
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.
Those are some of the nicest I have seen!
Here are mine.
It's a '53 or '54 DeSoto.
Heck I was hoping to sneak a peek inside a few COE's and trucks as well...
Some outstanding stuff so far.
Fat Lucky out of Texas did this to one of our frames...
The interior of my '32 3 window.
The seat inserts were matched to the engine.
Mine made from Chevy Lumina APV rear seats.
These will go in my '28 coupe.
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's the seat in my roadster...the kid that did it had never done a rod...mostly mini-trucks,donks,etc...Was nervous at first,til I saw what he had sketched out...
Wow, he sure pulled that on off nicely! Looks like a quality job to me!
Backseat I did for a 59 Galaxy. will post pic of front seat when finished.
Here's mine. 57 Chevy 150.
Here's my coupe
Here's the seat in my F-1, simple black vinyl. No seats in the COE yet....
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.
