Re: 69 Chevelle Malibu Seats - Reupholstery spring/bun question
I know! It's so weird, right!? So a little history on this car. I DO have a 1969 Chevelle MALIBU.. Non post cor. The car WAS special ordered with a center console, 4 speed transmission, and a 350 SBC (2 bolt) - ALL FROM THE FACTORY. So with that said, could it be that these seats were just thrown in there from the assembly line? I actually don't mind this material as it looks kind of cool.. but I do have all the regular "SS" foam, vinyl, burlap, etc ready to go. I spent about $400 in these parts and cant use them unless like you said, I actually buy the spring assemblies.. (there goes another $500).. At this point, I would've just bought some pre-assembled ones from PUI. Anyway, thank you so so much for actually replying and for your interest. It's good to know that I am not the only one who finds this weird.. LOL God bless. I will defiantly post pictures and I go along.
