08-10-2013 11:14 PM Back seat continued
Photo 1 The back board in place I was unable to bend it so another method will need to be used.
Photo 2 Using an old electric bread knife I cut the foam to shape. What a magic tool thanks u-tube for the idea.
Photo 3 The sewn back lad out to see how it all lines up, not too bad for an amateur.
Photo 4 Used fiberglass to mold the edges of the seat back. Back seat board in place just a bit of a cleanup required.
Photo 5 Had to think about how I was going to keep the seat in place, used a key hole system.
Photo 6 Back seat board fitted ready for foaming.

07-11-2013 11:29 PM Seat Back construction
Acquired a piece of 3/8 plywood for the backing board, first I cut it into shape.
After fixing it onto the body I did not like the way it looked as the top would have been square and 8” wide to go around the roll bar. Took it out and tried again this time with a 45 degree angle at the top this will give the foam a more rolling look which is far better. Started sewing the vinyl the same as the base getting them to line up will be fun.
Photo 1 First attempt on the back board.
Photo 2 Started over again this time with an angle.
Photo 3 All the pieces screwed together.
Photo 4 Back board fitted back onto the bucket.
Photo 5 Back vinyl placed in for measuring.
Photo 6 First attempt to mark out the foam.

06-14-2013 11:53 PM Seat Base continued
Cut out the side walls decided to put the joins where you cannot see them. I glued around the hold to keep the material from puckering. Glued across the front where the material should have the hump at the front. Stapled it all to the base. First attempt ever at this turn out very good. Far cheaper than $2500.00 as quoted.
Photo 01 Side walls attached
Photo 02 Second side Attached
Photo 03 All sewn up ready for attaching to the base.
Photo 04 Completed and installed drivers side.
Photo 05 Passenger side view
Onto the back now this looks very hard, love a challenge.

Carrying on with the seat base, Glad we did not throw away the old Riccar sewing machine.
Cut out the front pad and sewed it on to the pleated base done last week. Sat the base onto the material and marked out where it needed to be sewn. Cut this out then carried on with the sewing.
Photo 01 The old sewing machine still man enough for the job.
Photo 02 Front pad sewn on
Photo 03 Other side
Photo 04 Base on the material for marking out

06-09-2013 08:36 PM Interior continued
Went down to the local sewing shop purchased a leather needles, nylon thread and a welting foot.
I then went back to the foam supplier and purchased the vinyl, dark brown. It took me half the day of clowning around to get the wife’s sewing set up for vinyl. Why not start on the hardest part the through seat hole, after many trial attempts on some old vinyl a friend gave me I sort of got there.
Photo 01 Marking out the top seat area.
Photo 02 First attempt, when you stretch it out it looks ok.
Photo 03 The second cover added to the foam.
Photo 04 Base seat ready for the vinyl.
Photo 05 First stage sort of there, lucky the seat belt clips will hide the sewing.
