1971 Mustang Mach 1

They say the best advertising comes from "word of mouth".  I totally agree.  Our friends at Ridetech https://www.ridetech.com/ in Jasper, Indiana sent over a really cool guy, who is actually local, to work on new seats for his 1971 Mustang Mach 1.  This is a very special car.  He shows it everywhere, all the time.  He had purchased some aftermarket replacement seats already that were imported and inexpensive.  These didn't last long of course because they were very uncomfortable. This dude came to us needing a new set of front seats that were high quality, comfortable for his back and legs and needed a new cover for his rear seat to match the front.  

Keeping with the sporty look of the car, he chose our XR Sport Seats in black vinyl with light grey stitching.  Adding the contrasting thread color breaks up all of the black you see when you look inside the car, giving a little more character to the interior.  Guy, the customer, is a very handy and car savvy person but didn't feel like dealing with the issue of building his own mounting brackets to adapt our seat tracks to his floor board.  He chose to have us build his mounting brackets so that the installation process would be flawless.  

His front seats turned out great.  The XR's always look so elegant in any vehicle you put them in.  We weren't  sure what we were going to find as far as the condition of the seat foam in the rear seat but all was intact when we pulled the original cover off.  This car has been maintained very well over the years.  Covering it was a breeze and we can't wait to see everything installed in the car.  Watch out for this Mach 1 at the Goodguys shows.  He seems to hit all of them.  Thanks Guy, this was a fun project.

06 Ford F350 Rear Seat Cover

So our Arizona customer with the 06 F350 decided to have his rear seat recovered to match the front seats.  The foam was destroyed on one side so we replaced that as well as made patterns to match the Western Truck Seat upholstery style.  Turned out great, if I don't say so myself!  :)

So now we have this pattern available for this type of truck for future orders.  Give us a call for a quote.  909-392-5561.

Cerullo Mounting Brackets

Do you have questions about our mounting brackets? Here are some frequently asked questions answered.  

1.  Cerullo mounting brackets are designed to fit Cerullo Seats.  The fitment on other brad of seats cannot be guaranteed.  The mounting points from our sliders to the brackets are 11" front to back and 16" side to side.  If that fits the bottom of your sliders of another brand of seats, then it will work. 

2.  Cerullo mounting brackets are car specific, meaning that there is a specific mounting bracket design for each model and may also be different according to the years.  We have a detailed list, so if you want to know if we have a mounting bracket that fits your car, just give us a call and we can look it up easily.  

3.  When you order Cerullo seats with no brackets, you will get sliders that have studs pointing downward that can be either bolted to the floor (if your floor is flat and you need to be as close to the floor as possible) or bolted to a custom or self fabricated bracket that fits the design of your floor.  

When you order Cerullo seats with Cerullo mounting brackets, you get a set of "black sliders" that work specifically with the design of our "Recaro style" brackets.  You will also receive a set of adapter brackets that will hook onto the tabs that run along the top of the brackets.  These adapters allow you to adjust the height and tilt details of your seats during installation.  You can see the adapters placed on top of this bracket in this photo.  Also at the top of the photo you'll see a sample of the black slider that will fit on top of the adapter.

4.  When you order a set of brackets, you'll notice that both brackets are marked with a part number.  If it is not clear to you automatically which bracket fits on which side of the car, just remember that the even number is the driver side and the odd number is the passenger side. 

Of course if you ever have any other questions regarding our seats or mounting brackets, we're always available by phone during business hours.  909-392-5561

Mark's 51 Ford Truck Bench Seat

We had a walk in customer with a classic Ford truck looking for a new bench seat last month.  His truck is silver and he wanted to include that color in the seats without getting too glitzy.  Our silver vinyl from Katzkin was the perfect choice.  It has an iridescent shine to it that gives the "silver" look yet is not shiny.  Spread out over a large surface like the inserts of a bench seat, it ties in with the silver paint of the truck and the black outer trim gives a sharp pop to the interior.  We're grateful for the progress picture from our customer.  We'll post more as the truck comes to completion.

Frank's 1978 Firebird Seats

We just finished a special project for our customer Frank and his 78 Firebird.  He needed replacement seats and loved the shape of our XR Sport Seat yet he wanted to keep the integrity of the original upholstery pattern of his car.  Frank sent me a few photos of his existing interior and ordered a set of XRs and a rear seat cover that matched the photos he sent.  Here is the result.  Upon request, you can order a set like this for your special Firebird.  Notice, we also added the shoulder loop to hold his 3 point seat belts in place.

55 Studebaker Bench Seat

This custom bench seat was made for our customer's 55 Studebaker.  We actually don't have access to a seat that is designed particularly for the Studebaker, however, we did find a frame that had the right dimensions. We used part # SP49 bench frame from Glide Engineering. 

Our customer requested black vinyl with a splash of red somehow.  After discussing several options, we decided on a thick red thread for the stitching and diamond pattern inserts.  Putting the diamond pattern on the insert of a classic bench seat was a first for us and we're very happy with the result.  We'll show you the seat installed once that happens.

2006 Ford F350 Truck Seat

So we don't get a lot of customer photos with our truck seats installed, but we worked with a customer in Arizona that was gracious enough to give us a testimony and photos!  We've been really busy at the shop and Brad had to wait a few weeks for his custom truck seat but it all worked out.   And he's HAPPY!  Brad customized his seat a little requesting that the console be all vinyl as well as the headrests of the captain's chairs.  The only tweed we used was on the insert of the chairs.  I think the outcome was a very sleek, and clean look.  

Here are shots of his new Western Truck Seat and his F350 our customer uses for work.  His main concern was that the seats be comfortable even on long road trips.  His feedback is a positive one.

"I drove today from Phoenix to Sayre, Oklahoma.  The ride in the new seats was terrific!" - Brad from Arizona
