Finally got the buckets done!
removed jute and put in foam to help stop seat top compression.
Added an 1" thick piece of foam instead of the cotton. With reliefs for the listing wire access.
Had to cut a slot in the seat bunn for the mid horizontal listing access.
I have more assembly pics but I'll jump to the end:
Fairly pleased with the results.
I might take the lower seat bottom on the drivers side apart in the future and remove the 1" additional foam because I need to slide my legs in sideways to get into the drivers seat under the large steering wheel. Or I might just eventually change out the "bus" steering wheel for a smaller wheel, then there would be no problem.
There rear side panels are now complete:
They were hacked up for one speaker and a back seat light?
Here are the replacements blasted and painted.
Starting to apply felt padding:
After lots of heating and pulling and stretching and gluing!
Puzzle of reassembling the convertible top frame, done. Most of it has been powder coated the other areas painted after being sand blasted.
Now the real challenge, the top install !! (might wait a bit on this and work on other tings first)
Wow how impressive this is it looks beautiful! Ur patience and execution is amazing I wish Id didn't rush thru my stuff and took time like this you do.

Thanks, some times I even think that I am rushing. Having to make a decision on what method to do something and will anyone but me notice. Like on the convertible top the engagement pins were chromed when new. I was contemplating on re chroming them but instead just power coated them. I can see why a "true" nut and bolt resto is so $$.
