The Torino gets some custom one of a kind seats. Being a convertible we are starting with Chrysler Sebring seats with the retractable seat belt system originally made for a convertible. A set of used seats were purchased from a parts car as they are not sold new from the dealer only parts are available.
The bottoms have the adjusting rod on the passenger side and fully powered on the driver seat.
We want to remove the double hump look from the seat so we start by running some rod to re-shape the outer section of the head-rest in to a single shape.
Once we welded the rod to the factory brackets we installed webbing on and around the steel and on to the next step.
We also added extra foam to the inside section of the seat to make it more symmetrical side to side.
We mocked up a vinyl cover to get a look at what she will become and make our patterns. A little tweaking is needed to remove all the wrinkles.
The back side is the same, a bit of tweaking.
Side angle shows she is pretty close, with a few changes a nice seat will appear.
The final seat looks good covered in base ball glove materials. We have to dye the belt loop and install the seat belt and she will be ready.
Looking good, time to build the passenger seat.
