Had it out Friday to and from work in Addison. Was swamped with activities yesterday so I did not get a chance to go to that Larry Roesch car show. Summers finally coming all right.

Nice looking seats!
I'd like to swap my front bentch out and put buckets in mine, but have heard it's a real bear to get the mounting brackets to fit and to beef up the floor pan at the mounting points. How'd you do yours?

Mine had a bench too.And while it is not the most popular method it will work for now.I have bolts and fender washers holding the seats in.The outer bolt holes go thru the bench reinforcement plate.I plan on making bolt on plates for the other holes.

when you say bolt on plates you talkin bout weldin a plate to the floor and runnin bolts thru it er jus lettin the bolts hold it in place? I'm tryin ta put buckets in my 64 wagon the floor is naturally unlevel "from the bench seats" i made em work with a 2x4 under 'em but didn't like that so i ordered the bucket mountin brackets from chevy2only but looks like they'd only work if i was puttin in original type buckets? ....not tryin ta hijack yer thread but ya seats look AWESOME!!!!

I made brackets from some steel and the areas that were different heights I made different length brackets .I held seats in with bolts and fender washers going up thru floor into cage nuts on the seat brackets.

How did you work out the rear seat re. material cost? Did you install it on your stock rear seat? Have an interior shop do it?
I took the old seat and one of my new buckets to a interior shop and had him cover the rear seat to match as best he could.It is not a perfect match but looks good enough that most folks will never notice.I dont recall the cost of the whole process.
