Seats I

Remember those ugly seats?

I got start started on them today.  I removed the foam cushions and seat bases, and cleaned up the frames.  Here they are after cleaning...

And after painting.  They're still drying.  I taped off the sliders and adjustment handle.  Yes, these are sophisticated seats: 1-axis adjustability!  They tip forward, too... I suppose to allow one to pretend you can get in 'the back seat'.  (Which you can have--there was a cushion made for the parcel shelf behind the seats!)


Here's a good look at the seat bases.  I definitely have to repair the one on the right.  I think the one on the left is OK.  I'll cut the metal out and weld in a replacement panel.  The rest is in good enough shape and they'll clean up OK after some scrubbing and a coat of paint.  Then I have to clean up the seat backs.

This may take a while.
