Post Restoration Begins On Original 1967 Seats

Good news this past week. The car has been sent out to the body and panel guys for the last bit of work before the long task of putting her together begins. So that means all the smaller jobs need starting, one of which is restoring the old seats.

As you can see the original seats aren’t in the best of shape. The frames were bent and broken possibly due to a heavy previous owner perhaps?. So we’ve stripped them all, straightened the frames and welded up the cracks.

Once we strip the rear seats they will go off to the powder coaters to get recoated, along with the Diff housing and a few other bits and pieces that need doing.

All the tracks will need to be cleaned up as well and painted. Some of the bolts are a bit cross threaded so we’ll replace them and get them recoated as well. After all that we have some nice brand new deluxe upholstery to cover them all.

It’s all happening!
