Had to add some silky cotton in the corner' s to keep them puffed out, but I absolutely love it, the seat part is done. . I hope the "Backrest " is easier. .

NOTE : I'm not a professional just a woodworker, this took me about four days, 3 to 4 hours a day to complete. .

Looks extremely good to me. Wish I had that skill, I guess you learn when you try. Excellant. Maurice

On the 1985 Mustang,

I'm so glad that the belts come up from the side and in between the Backrest and seat. No holes in the seat, pew that would be hard to sew. gn.

I have finally finished the back seat and I like it, my neighbor also. I had extra material and made a seat cover.

No more duct tape yeah!!!!!!!!!! I hope to never touch a hog-ring again. .Well I guess the front seats are next, they still look really good but now the back and front don't match.
