I just picked up a 1975 challenger with a ford 460. Plans are to re paint part of boat, paint and repair trailer, build brand new seats ( 2 buckets and a bench) new carpet and some motor upgrades.

Almost finished with the seats. Anyone have any tips and tricks for gussets and braces that will make it easier for the upholstery guys to foam and cover them?

Looks good! I have a 78 challenger I need to do the subfloor and seats before this next season. But it may just wait another season.

Did you copy the wood from your old seats?
