'48 Chevy Front Seat

Just finished the seats on the '48 I'm working on. I'll post pictures of the rest when I get everything re-installed. All of the seat frames and springs were in very good condition, so I just had to replace the decking and re-pad them.

The padding is just 1" 2245 foam over a new deck pad (laminated deck skin) for the seat bottom, and 1" 2235 over new decking (white insuldeck) for the seat backs.

The vinyl is from Spradling. The dark red is Montana Soft Currant Red, and the white is Sierra Soft Off White. Both are part of Spradling's Automotive Collection.

Thank you Dan. Not just for posting the pictures of your work (which we enjoy immensely) but for taking the time to explain how and why you do things as you do.

It is neat to see pleats that are perfectly lined up after the seat is assembled. Great job.

Thanks again

John

The secret is to plan the layout in advance with the seat still put together. I measured it, marked it all out on the existing seats, and then made my patterns accordingly.

Now comes the easy part, putting down sound deadener and carpet padding. The silver faced product is called B-Quiet. It is a lot less expensive than DynaMat. The carpet padding is a terrific product by the Thermozite company. I like it because it was very inexpensive and is only 1/4" thick, yet it is very solid. This stuff molds right to the floor with some help from some foam to foam glue which holds it down perfectly. It comes in a roll 36"wide. I don't put much glue on the carpet itself, only next to the trans tunnel and maybe a few other places. I put both products under the rear seat as well. I wouldn't have had to, but it will make the car a lot quieter. I don't put carpet padding under the front seat, because it is a waste of padding, and in this case, the car has an under seat heater. It's not just a fan, it has a coil and has plumbing to it from under the car.

Finished the trunk on the '48. The panel behind the Chevy bow tie folds down for storage behind the seat. The bow tie is held on with Velcro, so the bow tie can go in a lot of places. Rear seat installed with carpet on the floor.
