Pic needed of 65 rear seat bottom removed from car
Posted by: Vin ()

I am recovering the rear seat bottom of my 65 convertible. I need to see a picture of the top vinyl area of the seat bottom so I can understand how much of the rear fabric on the back of the cover comes up over the top of the seat. I also need to see if the front piping is on the front right where the seat top meets the front or if the front piping sits down on the front of the seat. I need to heat and stretch the vinyl so having this info will tell me how much to heat and stretch. Without much stretching for example the rear fabric comes up over the top of the seat quite a bit and I need to see if that fabric is visible on top at all.
Many thanks in advance to anyone who has some pics of original examples that can help me.

Bill, thank you yes that helps too. In your pic I can see how the front of the rear seat bottom breaks and where the piping sits relative to the curve of the seat. In the email pics Mark sent it looks like the cloth back section comes up over the top 1 to 2 inches but it is not visible when the seat is installed because it tucks under the upper part of the seat. Mine was shaping up to have that cloth part still on top some and I wasn't sure if that was right or if I needed to stretch it more. Thanks

Look at this e-bay auction for a 1965 folding rear seat. It has a couple of photo's that may be of some value to you but they are not ideal photo's.
