WTB Bucket Seat Back

Looking for really nice OEM set of seat backs. I am restoring my bucket seats and want to stay with OEM if I can find a nice set. Found one set on eBay but they had a crack and cost was too much for a set that needed repair.

Re: WTB Bucket Seat Back

I believe I have a set - will need to dig for them though. I recall these have thin hairline peripheral cracks/splits common to OEM pieces but no missing components. Those on my Blazer now had similar cracks and were repaired and reinforced prior to install. Does my description fit with the quality you would consider? If so, shoot me a text and I'll reply with pics.

Re: WTB Bucket Seat Back

Thanks Pete. Yes, I think that could work. My next challenge would be learning or finding someone who could repair them. Any tips ?

Text on its way.

Ttt.

One of my original backs can be repaired. I would be OK with one back if anyone has a single out there.

I repaired the one's on my Jimmy, and it sounds like the damage is much like the one's that are offered.

I just reinforced the backsides with a few layers of fiberglass. Just a bit of resin, hardener and a few small pieces of matt glass.

I think they'll hold up very well.

Re: WTB Bucket Seat Back

Thanks guys.

Ptskj,
I’m trying to find a set or a single without having to take DeadheadNM’s spare set. 6t727t2 hasn’t had time to find packaging and arrange for shipping yet. Jimmy70 contacted me and may have one and is planning to send me pics on Thursday.
I’m not sure if I will try to repair the cracks myself or hire someone to do it but it looks like that will be the direction I’m going.

Mrtoni,
Send me some pics of the single back you have that isn’t missing pieces.
