Default The answer to my bench seat trouble

Was planning on buying all my hd foam this weekend and starting my bench seat for the 30 pickup. Really wasnt looking foreward to learning how to use a sewing machine and messing with the electric carving knife. I need more leg room and the seat that came with the pickup wasnt stock. Northern tool has this tractor seat that fits the bill to a T. I might have to block it up a bit, but for $129 Im not gonna bitch.

School bus seats work well in some old cars too.

I used a rear bench seat from a Dodge Darango for my Huckster Van, cost of $25 dollars from a junk yard, seat belts were attached to it also. It was Red, and I used Ritz Clothing Dye to color it Black. The width of the seat is 41". Go to post #19 in the link below to see more Photo's.
