I often see the tracks for bucket seats in parts suppliers catalogs, but what can I do about these rusted tracks on my bench seat. It comes from a junkyard 72 Chevelle and the tracks are so rusted that I can't slide the seat forward/backward.

I had the same problem. I just soaked them down with WD-40, let em sit for a while and then wired brushed the heck out of em. Then I painted them with RUST-SEAL. (It's like POR-15, just cheaper.) All is well now.

Mine weren't seized, but they were very stiff. I just used that "marine clean" that I got with the por-15 kit to get all the grime out, and started in with wd-40 and just worked them back and forth for a few days. I painted the outsides with por, and just used lots of white lith grease in the runners. They feel like new

Thanks for the tips. I guess I will try the
WD-40 and POR 15 route.
