Our Classic bucket seat was designed without a headrest. It's a low back seat with a vintage look that makes is a versatile seat for many Chevy models and more. This week we made a set in all black suede with headrests and a loop to hold a 3 point seat belt in place on the shoulder. These straps can be added to any seat we make. Just ask.
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.
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
Todd from Oregon had just had his 53 Willys truck painted and it was really important to him that the seats matched the colors of his new truck paint. We got lucky with this one. I took one look at the paint samples he emailed me and I knew exactly the shades he would need. After speaking with him, discussing the style and color direction he wanted to go and sending Todd the swatch samples in the mail, we agreed on a plan. We went with the SC Sport seats in Cognac and Orange with no headrest. We're pretty pleased with the outcome.
Todd's truck is a beauty. We're grateful and proud to have been a part of this project.
So we finally received a set of photos we've been waiting for for a long time. Our customer in Texas had this seat built for a recently restored 57 GMC truck for their son. This was a birthday surprise for him. The color scheme was important because it needed to match the truck's new paint job. We think the blue and green worked really well and it compliments the truck nicely.
We used a Glide frame with a center arm rest and added cup holders. The mounting brackets are included when you buy a complete bench seat from us. Another great project in the books.
We have a new accessory. We've had several people ask us about these padded mats used in the garage for guys working under their cars. It's designed to help you protect your back and knees from the hard ground. They are simple, understated and very useful. So here it is....
This fold-able mat stretches out to 52" in length and 24" in width. Fold it up for storage and the size becomes 24" x 13". We've priced them at $40 ea. Call us to order yours today. We have plenty in stock in blue vinyl. Order yours in a custom color if you'd like. 909-392-5561
This week we completed a fun custom project for a nice lady with a stunning 65 Mustang. Her idea was to eliminate the standard pleats we usually sew into the SC Sport Seat inserts and build a bright red racing stripe down the center. We kept this theme through the rear seat cover as well so that the entire interior matches. She also chose to eliminate the headrests.
We're grateful for the opportunity to work on such a creative design and glad we could incorporate the customer's personal touch in her new interior.
We're back from the LA Classic Auto Show that was held at the LA Convention Center this last weekend. What a great time. Two floors worth of beautiful and very expensive classic cars as well as exhibitor booths from a variety of businesses in the automotive industry.
Our booth was located right next to the Restoration Station interview stage where we got to hear from some big names in the industry like Dave Kindig from the TV show Bitchen Rides, Horny Mike and Kevin from the show Counting Cars and Stacey David from the show GearZ. We also got to watch an upholstery demo from the guys at Sew Cal Interiors. Check out our pictures.
