Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

Did my own Black Friday shopping. Went to Kentucky and got 2 seats for restoration, and a few other parts. I also found a super nice set Charcoal seatbelts for my truck, too bad everything else on the interior was gone, including the seat!! They just got this truck in a few days ago!! The outside of the truck looked rough, but the interior was obviously clean!!
It was so nice, sunny and 55!!

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

That is the best kind of Black Friday shopping.

It was!! No crowds, it was quiet and a nice sunny day. We did go to our local Best Buy for a few things, it was early evening. I don't know why people want to get into that big crowd, thats no fun. Best Buy still had PLENTY of all the Black Friday items. I wanted to get a backup camera for my Colorado, it has a cap, so when it's packed with seats I can't even see thru to the back. It is hard not being able to see when I'm backing up out of somewhere.
I work at Honda, so I have really gotten spoiled with all the SUV's having backup cameras.

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

Did the C10 3 point seat belts ever come in black or is charcoal the closest thing to it?

The Charcoal is the closest to it. The Charcoal is pretty much black, in my opinion. So they can be used in a black or charcoal truck.

Once I get retired from my full time job in March. I MIGHT actually have the time to start making them myself.

The Mandrin Orange is a rarely seen color also, I'm hoping someone will want want one that color sometime. Here is the samples he was showing me of the Orange.
mmmmhmmm, mandarin is a very hard color to find. Seats are looking pretty good btw.

It is. That particular pic is when I first bought it back in 2005. It is in the process of being torn apart for some work. Interior is going to low back leather buckets and a console but it will still be mandarin.

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

This seat is for a Suburban, so it is a non-tilt Seat. Didnít even have time to put it completely together, because it sold right away.

It also got new foam. And it has the correct Suburban tracks, they are very similar to to 81-87 tracks.

This one will make a good candidate for restoration.
