Re: Bench to bucket conversion

What ever you do spend a little more and buy carefully or you will end up dropping a lot of additional $ to restore. Spend more today to keep the overall cost down. I see many in the $450 range. These look like a nice set. I also changed my 68 Chevelle to buckets but ended up replacing a lot of parts. Springs are cheap today and well done but! You are probably bothered more by the angle leaning back that the older seats provided not to mention we are all used to 10 position seats. Personally I like buckets and would make the change but the older seats are not bolstered much and do not offer the support or adjustability like today's. Seat brackets and sliders are also important so get the correct ones not just universal ones.
