    Eric, did you do those yourself? where did you get the stuff?

    John, were the utility seats not a normal option? I figured they were the cheap buckets that were available, I"ve got them in mine too

    Sorry no patterns, all I did was drop them off at the local Mexican upholstery shop then pick them up 2 weeks later.They wanted another $250 to do the back seat but I wanted to see how well the buckets turned out before I comitted to the back. so Ill have it done in a few weeks,Im very happy with there work. Im going with a yellow/black paint scem when Im done with the body work

    Those seats were an option, called "Heavy duty aux seats" Don't know much about them past they are made alot stronger and you can't get reupolster kits for them.

    will the Wet Oakley (spelling is wrong) Covers fit those ok? Anyone know? Should they go over the metal backs or under and punch the screws through?
