Finally got around to tackling the back seat. It was in pretty rough shape on the outside but surprisingly in good shape underneath. I soaked the foam in my bathtub full of soap and oxy clean for a couple hours. They weighed about 70 lbs when I tried lifting them out. Had to let them partially dry in the tub before attempting to move them. Pretty sure they would’ve fallen apart from the weight. Sanded down the frame underneath and painted with rust preventative. Sanded down all the brackets and painted them with Eastwood satin chassis black. Here’s a couple pics of before and after. Not completely done yet very close.

Old ratty seat





Had to make a new back plate as the old one was beat up pretty badly.



Painted frames



Backrest. Contemplating adding more foam.



Seat pics

Back seat is in and looks amazing. Can't thank Jeff Jamison enough for what a great job he did on this. These aren't the best pics but I had to share due to excitement. Turns out I measured the tonneau perfectly as the back seat ends right at the tonneau lip.
