69 Camaro Seat Wire #1
Dead On is being built to a " whole nuther level " so we need radical bucket seats for an interior that goes along in keeping with our theme. We start by selecting some standard bucket seat frames from Glide to get the ball rolling.
One of the first things I decided on was inserting a double seat belt tunnel in the headrest section so Jan drew up a design on wood and is ready to carve it out.
The trim will actually go around the perimeter of the opening about 3/8 of an inch to achieve the look I want.
Jan is laying out the lower seat section side bolster with chip board to determine the look we are after.
On the inside we have a different shape as it starts to come down to where the actual seat section will be.
The upper section receives a different shaped wire for the side bolster in keeping with our radical dead On theme.
Small wires are formed to go around the hinges to support the foam while hiding the mechanisms as much as possible.
Measuring to be sure the wires are exact side to side.
Jan brought the wires all the way around the top and back down with a smooth transition for a free flowing seat just like the rest of the car is being built.
The seat belt wood buck is inserted to check fit.
Side angle shows the aggressive stance of the seat. We are talking the Ultimate in Luxurious Muscle comfort.
Front view shows a very symmetrical flow of the upper frame to the bottom.
The chip board mock up of the upper headrest is next then Jan can figure the foam.
