Seats. Halp!

Dad n I are in a pickle trying to find how the seats get mounted in the '34 convertible. What did you guys use for seat mounts? Pictures are preferred that are close up.

Thanks guys,

Jay K.

i'm curious to that also. I'm almost to that point. I'm thinking i need to narrow the tunnel to give some clearance to the doors. Right now, i've modified my seat frames to align up with the mount strips on the frame. I welded tabs facing toward the center of the seat frame, but i don't know if i need to use the brackets that came with the kit. I don't think i do need to use them.

Thanks for asking. We want to use bucket seats. The Procar by scat 80 1300 53 class of seats are nice.

Additionally, rakick could you provide photos of your seat mounts?

Jay I just got home from a long stay in the hospitaql so am just getting to this.

I had to lift my seats up some so made S/S mounts, they are bent S/S sheetmetal that the seat mounts to front and back, then mounts to the floor. They are u shaped with a lip to mount to the floor, when you look at them from the side you can't see under the seat. Then between my legs I have a tray that comes out and holds a soft drink can, and has room for my billfold or whatever.

Bob

Hi Bob,

Glad to see you on here again! Get well soon! As for our seats, we went with a hybrid of the SB floor mounts and the slider rails from the mnfr. of Procar seats.

Bottom line, the line of sight is on point and we're very happy with it.

Jay K.

Ps. Glad to see you posting again and get healthy, Dang it!

Vickie Door glass

I have a partial kit from when it was CMC. Before SB went under, I had bought a lot of the stuff I needed, but I have no glass. Frt and rear is no prob, but I need some patterns for the door glass. Anyone out there have an unfinished Vicky kit from which I could get some patterns to have the glass made? Or who originally manufactured the glass for SB?

34 coupe street beast

Hi, my name is vince, I have a 34 ford coupe project. I am moving to australia so i gave my friend a good deal on the car. Problem is I lost the manual for assembly. I am wondering if any of you out there would be willing to get me a copy of your assembly manual so I can pass it on to him.
Thanks

Vince,

Have him join the forum. The book for the most part isn't worth the ink it was written with.

He is not a computer guy so I doubt he will come to the forum but i will try. He helped with the car a little bit whenI started the project. He actually liked the manual. To each thier own I guess. So If I could buy a copy from someone it would be great.
Thanks again.

Jason0779,

Does that rebar back bumper have a vendor's name on it?

That low profile back bumper really flows on that car!

An 8 inch wide tire will do but would prefer a 10 inch wide tire if it would fit, anyone done that size tire? 10 inches may be too wide to fit even with the rear end shortened, no idea. I'm willing to move the shock mount inboard to acquire more room. Anyone that can help would be appreciated. Would rather have an idea before I start dealing with measuring to avoid missing something.
Got a 99 Explorer rear w/disc brakes 3:73 gear. Cut left axle tube 2 5/16 inches . Can use a right side axle fits perfect. Gives you a 56 1/2 rear that fits great. I also went 4 Bar w/coilovers and can use as wide a tire as wanted.
