Hello .. I am ricardo, I am from Porto - Portugal and I am restoring a dodge D25 special deluxe, 4 door ( year 1946)( I'm new in forum, so sorry for something i do wrong ) At the moment, i'm in the interior of the vehicle and I have doubts about front seat tracks( when I bought the vehicle the interior was burned and don't have the front seat tracks ). Please, someone can help me with front seat tracks ( photos ) for my car? If possible send me the seats ( complete and incomplete seats - Photos ). Best Regards for everybody Ricardo Silva
After pondering on it for a while, I figured I'd take a stab at redoing the seats in my 48. I went to Wally World an found some material that looked similar and would go with my new carpet and bought two kinds, a softer velvety type material with a strong canvas type backing and and a striped pattern that was canvas too. I also bought a couple yards of a soft fleece type material to use for backing on the seat backs and sides. I completely disassembled the seat and took all the springs out of the bottom. I put them back in over a piece of 3/8 plywood and tied them all together with some left over rebar tying wire to stiffen up the bottom seat. I then wired three rods across the top to stiffen it up more. I cut apart all the original material to use as templates and cut out the new material from them. I sewed them up using a cheap $70 machine I got from amazon.com. It did very well. I put it altogether tonight and I think it turned out OK for about $50 in materials and two weeks of my time working in the evenings and on the weekends. Before, thoroughly worn out and saggy as can be... After, sits and looks much better... Sorry about the picture quality. All I had was my crappy phone and it doesn't take the best picture in my dark workroom.
