So repairing the old seats was going to be a massive load of work since the bottoms were all rusted out, the reclining hardware broken, and the foam was bad.
I have a good friend in the upholstery business and he has offered to help get the interior pulled together, so I found seats that we will reupholster. They offer much better support and therefore safety than the original ones. We will match material with the dash and door panels so everything will look cohesive.
I went with these since finding seats at a reasonable price in tan leather is a pipe dream and matching the leather to the dash and door panels would be almost impossible.
I've been sitting in the car gripping the steering wheel like a 10 year old... Ha
