    Just joined the forum today. Spent about 5 hours today turning my 60/40 seat into a pair of regular buckets--a little metal work, a little sewing with some fishing line and I'm ready for a set of regular seat covers. :eek:

    First pic is the metal that I cut off the seat--the second is the foam I removed and the last is the finished seat. I used rivets to fasten the material to the frame and fishing line to sew up the seam on the corner--all together it took around 5 hours to complete and once I install my new seat covers you won't be able to tell they aren't factory.:thumbup:

    Here's what I've done so far. Took the trim pieces off the outside of the cab and applied a generous amount of sealant and then reinstalled them. Took the cross member out that the old dome light attached to. Roughed up the cab roof on the inside. Cut out a section of foam board and installed it using 3M window weld which is now setting up. I also filled in a lot of the empty cavities with spray foam and installed blue led lights on the kick panels.
