I haven't done buckets yet. And I have been searching around and can't seem to find any replacement foam. Also looking at other interiors, are these seats original to the truck?

Just a suggestion, to keep your cost down, get some seats from a donor truck. Here's a nice set.

thanks! For the suggestion i can't find any good seats near me so I've giving up on used saets plus the truck is going to see 9k miles a year so I think finding someone to fix then is best route.

This seat sold before I even got it done. It will be going out to Wyoming, when it's completed. I'll post actual photos of the seat when I get it finished up this weekend.

Yes they will fit. Right now the only seats I have available, are with new foam. These are $750. If I get a core return seat from you, I take $50 off, so it would be $700. If I get more seats where I can use the original foam, the seats $500. I just don't have any where I can reuse the original foam. So they have to have new foam.

Re: Bench Seat, Having it Reupholstered

Working on a few seats, sandblasting the frames and tracks. Unfortunately the 69 seat, the seat frame completely rusted through. I was able to salvage the tracks at least.

Working on an 81-87 seat, it will be a black vinyl deluxe with a new foam.

Also working on the 74 seat, it will be in saddle vinyl.

So a am I, lol. All I'm waiting on now is the end support springs. USA1 Industries only had 3 in stock, and it takes 6 total, 3 on each end. I got the tracks and frame sandblasted and those are ready for paint. Also got those stainless steel pieces on the side there by the hinges all polished up.

These are the springs and this is just a generic photo of what it should look like. The seat also has the hinge covers, not sure if I'll paint them in saddle or black.

Can this style work on a 75 C10 seat? LMC shows this style for 81-87 but can you make it work? I'm still not 100% on the difference on the styles from 73-80 and 81-87. Let me know. Thanks

I assume you mean the cover itself? The foam sizes are just a hair different from 73-80 to 81-87. So the "STYLE" is correct for the model year. The Deluxe Style came out on the 81-87. Now what can be done, is to put a 81-87 bench seat with that deluxe cover, in to your 75. All the seats will fit from 73-87 onto the truck cab floor.

I have a good seat with good foam. I just wanted this style (81-87) cover installed and wanted to know if it would work. The stitch pattern looks nicer to me than what is offered for the 73-80 seats...in my opinion. Any idea if the cover will fit without much hassle (understanding that the foam is slightly different)? Just looking for advise for someone with a lot of knowledge on these seats. I don't want to buy something that doesn't work. Thanks
