I dunno about the dash, but for the seats - just measure the space you've got to work with, go to the scrap yard, and look for seats from RECENT wrecks.

I`ve been scouring everywhere for buckets for my 75 Duster. Bout all I can find close to original are in pretty poor shape and people are wanting up to 1000 for them. As much as i would like to go with "original", I think I`m just going to bite the bullet and go with a pair of nicer padded racing seats.

I can tell you that import seats are a pain to try to install. The way the floor is made in your Mopar makes it hard without major fab work to install any non factory seat. I have installed several of the seats that you can get from Summit and some of the padded racing seats.
Pop an extra 100$ a seat and get the seats that tilt and you will be happier.
The flat slides work well, you will need to put them on the left inside of the tracks, but it works.
They will also fit in between the factory hump/valleys of the original seat mount areas. You will have to shim them up a bit to you liking, I did mine one inch in rear and a half inch in front. Has worked great on each car I have built. Unless you get lucky and get a Mopar with buckets that are in great shape, The cost of the seat cover kits will run almost as high as the after-market seats.
Good luck!

You realize that this thread is 7 years old, right?

The new seats are not the problem. The mounting brackets that presently attach to the floor of your car to level the original seats can be used and the new seats can be adapted to fit those OEM mounting brackets.

Oh, that is right if you have those parts to adapt the new seats, but as for most of the cars I've found have either bench seats or none ata all.
Yes I do understand that all prior replays other than the one just before my first was 7 years old. casehd needed some info, dont be so critical lol.

The point is that starting a new thread would have worked just as well or better than adding to an ancient one, and my comment was intended for casehd, not you. The chances of any of the people in the old thread still being around are very small. I wasn't trying to be critical, just doing my job as a moderator.

Not at all, I realize you were just trying to help him.
