Where to Get seats for a 38 Terraplane

I am ready to get my seats for my 1938 Terraplane. I was looking to get them from Zig's but this site had nothing but bad reviews about there customer service. Before I drop $1,000 to $1,200 on 2 seat frames I would like to make sure it's with a company that has a few happy customers...
My car specs are pretty much the same as the 38 Ford. Any help would be great...
thanks

H'mmm have no idea exactly what you are doing here..can say I took an s-10 seat...stripped the seat cover and foam and then sectioned the seat frame so it would fit into a 34 Ford..the guy got it recovered and it worked out just fine..

Note: I am a welder fabricator not an interior guy..My local car parts place has some seats on sale for 120 ea that look fine to me..so if you have some ideas of what you want may be able to help you more..

Some of the Toyota and Nissan small pickups have seats that may work as well..

Find something that fits and then off to the local upholstery shop is what I would do..

Do you want to go vintage looking or what?

What is the theme you are going for?

I can tell you Glide does a beautiful job on frames and has one that will fit with a split back. I dont sell them or work for them but have used them in customer cars in the past.

They offer an uncovered seat with molded foam that a talented trimmer can make you a real top notch seat. Or a stock cover set with a multitude of options. And if you order without covers with the molded pads to use as a base should be able to get you a real top shelf seating set up as a center piece of your interior.

Thanks Creative,
I am going resto-rod. My project journal has most of that stuff on it. I am going to search the internet for glide and see what they have. It sounds like you know what I am looking for. I just did not want to buy them from Zigs due to their bad rating. I know I am looking at about $500 per frame w/out foam but the money is not a problem as I am prefer to spend now than regret later!
