1) Looking to upgrade to near stock interior...i need new front bucket seats...are the springs offered in some of the parts websites..acceptable? looks like they offer seat and back springs, foam padding, trim etc. In general, is this a reasonable approach...OR

Is it worth looking for original seats and restoring them as an option?

2) Does anyone have a drawing or know how/where are install the manual console lid return spring? I think i have a non-original lid and the location is not evident to me.


thanks all,

R&B

The springs available from the vendors are too stiff. Order from Ben at The Seat Guy. He has all the correct material necessary to build/repair your seat framework. (except covers and pads)
ACI pads are the best.

Thanks guys for your help...its in! adding a lot of small stuff to the beast....fyi if ur interested, the car was featured in Motor Trend magazine in 2006...Not much changed when I obtained it, but since then, added Tremec 5sp., 373 gears and rebuilt posi, rear QA! coilovers, new Holley 850CFM DP and Taylor wires. Several other small additions such as the console spring and stock repro seat belts etc. Pontiac Jim was helpful with gear selection.

Planning to go with QA1 front suspension over the winter....

Will be attending the Lead East Car Show in September for those of you who may be interested...over 1000 cars and 50s music, concerts...great show!
