New Bucket Seats from Krist Kustoms

Although Im a little biased, maybe because I designed them.

I just finished upholstering the first one today. Its also the first bucket seat on the market with the option of a polished billet aluminum recliner handle. They will all come with map pockets sewn in the rear. Let me know what you guys think.

Pretty sweet Shawn!!! Looks like they are real comfortable. Have you installed them in anything yet to see how they sit? Are you going to be supplying the brackets for sale also?

Great pattern work Shawn. What are the measurements for the seat? Will you have a matching passenger one with a lever on the right side also?

It doesn't get any better than that, Shawn!

PM me re: your prices -- I'd also like to know the measurements; how high does the back measure, from the seat to the top ... and how deep does the seat measure, from back to front (butt to knee).

The back is about 28" tall. The seat bottom depth is about 21". The width at the widest point is 19".

I experimented with the foam to get the exact shape i wanted to provide a super comfortable seat. Over all the years of making seats, I found a certain shape that provides the right back support, shoulder support, and thigh support.

Yes, there is a passenger and driver seat. I will be upholstering the passengers seat today. These seats are actually going into a customer's car, along with serving as the seats to be used for pictures in my ads.

As far as brackets, they wil be sold with universal sliding tracks, but these are going to be geared toward the hot rod market. So to start, i wont have any brackets to allow the seats to be bolted into newer vehicles. Those will need to be fabricated.
