Re: I Have Gotten Fat And Need Help Can U Help?

I recommend Chrysler Sebring convertible seats (2001 and up) to replace the bench seat. These seats have integral seat belts, power six way driver's seat, and not as thick as the stock bench seat. I don't know how much you would gain exactly, since you would have to fab mounting brackets. This is what I plan to do with my 83 C20.

Post some pics when you can, including the interior.

What are your plans for the old bench seat? I might be willing to take it(buy) off your hands, when your ready.

For a while I will be keeping the bench till I take some measurements and see what options I have. (for cheap )

Will take some pics as soon as I get it here and have some time...

Use this place to search. It searches all salvage yards. It even found local yards to me, that I didn't even know existed.

This is how I finally found my bench seat. I wanted a period correct one and was getting into panic mode, thinking I was never going to find one, until someone told me about this place. And it found a place just 40 mins from me. And I was able to get lots more stuff from this truck.

Since then, I prowl for more bench seats. I have taken up a hobby of restoring/recovering them.

Is it my video or does the engine seem not to be running in tune with the sound. I hear the engine but the pic is a still photo. Look at the fan belt.

Re: I Have Gotten Fat And Need Help Can U Help?

Well after all it seems the deal will fall through. Dont have the cash on hand till tax time and guy doesnt have title in his name so bank will not do deal till he has actual title in his name (receipt for transfer isn't good enough) and he doesnt want to wait 2 wks till he has title in hand so I am likely going to miss out. He wants to 'jump title' so he is going to go with a cash buyer in the mean time and just have them transfer the title to them. Michigan will not do a quick title since it's an out of state title otherwise deal would be done...

Well that's a bummer. Keep looking, there's plenty of them out there.

Re: I Have Gotten Fat And Need Help Can U Help?

I think I am with the bank on that one. I would want title in hand before I fork over cash.

Well the stupid thing about it is they have no problem giving me money, just not at the lower rate. They said they could do a line of credit instead....Pretty much said here's your money and more than you need but you will have to pay a higher rate since we value your money so much we want more of it.

Re: I Have Gotten Fat And Need Help Can U Help?

Another fat dude here. I went from 560 to 390 and due to some depression and other things in my life I've put about 60 of that back on. It's a constant struggle and takes a lot of effort, but it's worth it. I've been this way most of my adult life and it's essentially made everything 10 times harder than it needs to be and caused me all sorts of untold grief and such. Thankfully I am on my way back down slowly and I am also looking into surgical options as well.

I have a 89 Suburban with the factory wheel and tilt, I drive with the tilt up and I still rub on the belly a little bit, but its functional. The truck is apart right now, but when I put it back together I might redrill the seat holes to give me a little more clearance. Although I'm not exactly a tall person, so then I start getting into issues with pedal length. It's a battle, and I wish you luck!

It's tough, I love fried chicken & potatoes, but it adds up fast... Once you get used to the good foods and small portions it's not too hard, cave in to that pizza and wings a couple times and it's like crack...

Re: I Have Gotten Fat And Need Help Can U Help?

You guys wont believe this........

Guy gets here, starts truck up, starts backing out, no brake lights, backup lights or headlights...

I figured I needed to do some wiring so I was like well, whatever...

Go inside to do the deal and give up the cash, look at the title and.........

Original owner signed off to someone, that person signed off to someone else and then that person never signed off, and none of the signatures were anyone related to the guy I was dealing with and everything was signed 3yrs ago........

I said load it back up and when you get a title in your name get ahold of me....

I would have check the vin number on the title with the truck.
Something doesn't sound right with this deal. Maybe the truck is stolen?

Well I checked the vin he gave me and it didnt show on the NICB list as total loss or theft but I really didnt check to make sure vin matched truck which I know I should have.

At this point I am just going to put the money back into my account and try to find something better.

Yeah, I have been searching all over and really between flakes and liars it's getting harder and harder to make deals.

We will see what happens in the next couple days.

My son is actually getting kind of interested in vehicles. For his one school assignment he has to do it requires an instructional book, he chose a Chilton. The teacher tried to have him change it, but let him use it in the end, probably wanted to have him use some book on how to draw rainbows & snowflakes or how to start a protest. Daddy was gonna have to go lay down the law, instructional and useful should be what they teach not ignorance and how to burn a
