    Default Bucket seat finds on eBay (especially for "tudor" owners)

    Hi, everyone! I do still exist, I just give as little thought as possible to car junk anymore.

    Last night I went a little wonky and searched eBay for seats. I found the following four auctions for Pinto and Mustang II seats, which appear to be basically the same as the very comfortable and convenient bucket seats that went in some Box CVPI models. These seats are narrower than normal Box seats, but it's possible to install them on manual Box sliders by drilling extra holes on the "feet" to move the rails closer together. It'll be taller than with using CVPI bucket sliders, but those sliders seem hard to find and I don't recall ever being able to determine what other cars used those same sliders (surely there were others since the sliders on my old CVPI had double-drilled mounting holes on the "feet").

    Nah I think you're too stuck in the 70s. They don't have enough side bolster.

    That is how you're supposed to jack it.

    Up and down.
