10-10-2014 05:01 PM One More Seat
Been ultra busy building custom seat frames... As many of you know we started building custom seat frames for hot rods and antique vehicles several years back. You know the ones... The ones that were rotting away right out from under that shabby upholstery. The same upholstery that had been replaced 3 times since you had the car. In most cases the seat frames hadn't been seen since the day the car was rolled off the assembly line in thirty's. When we discovered just how far our original seat frames had degraded we were like everyone else and started looking for options.

With the original seat frames being made of wood and coil springs it didn't make since to us... Why would we trust our safety in a heavily modified car that had been upgraded in every way to such a fragile antiquated seat design and inferior materials?

Until the next entry we invite you to scroll through our album and get a feel for what we are all about. We've solved a lot of challenging seating issues and look forward to working with you on your here on the Hotrodders Bullentin Board.

We searched all the brand name manufactures to help us in building seat frames that would resemble the original seat frames but with the modern upgrades. We needed something that utilized the modern materials and designs, A seat frame with the same integrity as a modern vehicle with the old school look, No luck. There were some cookie cutter seat frames available but none that really fit correctly. Most were built way too small and the manufactures expected us to make up the sloppy fit with excess foam to fill in the gaps between the seat frame and the interior walls of the vehicle.

We decided to start building build good fitting custom seat frames to our customers dimensions. The whole goal was to build a safe, modern seat frame with that old school shape so that once upholstered it would look vintage.

In this Journal we would like to touch on how to up grade your original seat frame if possible, or if you should ditch it? We would like to discuss modifications that you can do at home or with the help of professional to insure the integrity of your seat frames as well as touch on basic seat frame repairs. Stay tuned as this journal will start grow very soon.
