Re: 67 Strato Front Bench seat - help needed!
Thanks Russ. I'll try that link on CRG again but I cannot seem to see the pictures. It's from 2012 so maybe they have been deleted.
Yes, I saw the plastic hinge covers (escutcheons) on Ebay, it seems these, and the seat covers, are the ONLY parts reproduced for the front bench seats. And I really don't want to buy another full bench seat if I can avoid it, I live in Canada and the shipping cost alone would kill me on a full bench....
What I really need is someone who HAS a front bench (maybe out of the car awaiting restoration) that can show me some pictures of what the arm rest brackets look like UNDER these escutcheons. Most the pictures on line have the escutcheons in the way (covering the brackets) so I still can't tell what the actual bracket itself looks like.
Also, I cannot figure out how the seat back pivots (inside pivots) work, it seems this may be a separate bracket from the arm rest bracket? The outer pivots are the same as the bucket seats but the inside pivots are not, and mine are missing.
Again, anybody that has a bench seat that could get me some really detailed pictures of these brackets, maybe even some measurements, would be HUGELY appreciated!!
Note - there was a thread on this site from 2010 from user JediJawa and he stated that he has a build thread going where he was rebuilding his front bench with pictures but I can't find his build thread. I PM'd him but he hasn't been on this site since 2012 so I'm not sure he's a member anymore...
