65 Nova Front and Rear

We had a customer with a 65 Nova that needed 2 new front seats and new upholstery on her already existing rear seat.  She chose the Classic Bucket for her front seats.  She was short so her concern was that she wouldn't be able to sit close enough to the wheel.  Simple fix:  we added 1" of foam to the backrest of the driver seat (her personal throne) to push her forward slightly. 

 

We got a surprise when we took her rear seat apart.  The original foam had turned to dust and the frame was so rusted, we were scared to touch it.  Check it out..

We had to sandblast and powder coat the frame to ensure it would last for years to come.

Everyone was so happy.  Success.  Next our designer made a pattern for the rear that matched the design of the Classic buckets and this was the result.

In the end, it all worked out and our customer was ecstatic.   We're dying to see the photos of everything installed.  Richard at Hot Rods & Custom Stuff in Escondido made custom mounting brackets to install her front seats.  Thanks to everyone involved.  Great project.
