Tea's Design seat is in the 35
 
Got my seat bolted in today. Thought I would post a few pics of the Tea's Design seat. It really is a nice seat!! Took a little more time to get it sitting in there just right than I thought it would. Now on to mounting the column. I went with the Tru Ram cast iron exhaust manifolds, hope they give me more room for the steering shaft than the block huggers.

You'll have to excuse my ignorance towards pre-48 aftermarket parts, but those sure look a lot like a set of j-body bucket seats turned into a 40/20/40 bench. They look real good though, congrats!

Ditto I love my Tea's seat also.

Fast approaching the need for seats for 36 Ford sedan. I'm assuming you guys did the research....why aftermarket seats vs. a Junkyard seat?

My car is chopped and Teas makes a low seat for this car. I bought enough material to do the headliner and door panels. Nice seat for the money. I tried a mini van seat but it needed to be cut down and was NOT comfortable. Glad I went with Teas.

The good thing about buying a seat from Tea's is that the seat is designed for your particular car. Yes they are pricey but IMO quite worth it for comfort and ease of fit.

I bought my seat from TEA, for my 31 coupe, full bench and also enough fabric to finish the interior. It was a bit pricy but well worth the money. fully adjustable and comfortable and fit right in. I couldn't find any junk yard bench seat that would fit and was adjustable. sc

I bought my seats from Wise Guys - several reasons. Most of the buckets I found in the yards were high-backed or had headrests, which I didn't want. Most were too wide for my '33 ford sedan. Buying new I could specify the width I wanted. My back seat is a front seat for a roadster. The seat back tilts forward (and back), so I could store my battery and toolbox behind the seat and still have easy access to them. Wise Guys offers that seat with the seat surface 2" lower than standard, and the back can be shortened 2" as well. Because of my chopped top I wanted the extra room afforded by the lower seat, and the lowered back sits just below my rear window giving me the full view. I sat in their seats at one of the Nats, so I knew they were very comfortable, unlike most of the sub-compact seats (that would fit in my narrow sedan) from the yards. Teas seats are also very comfortable, but I wanted a different look than the Teas seats I had seen. (I would have gone with Teas if I had been building a roadster!)
