New 2-tone Post Car Interior-Legnedary
« on: June 24, 2013, 11:00:23 AM »
Hi all,

Got my new interior installed over the weekend, figure some would like to see the correct 2-tone pattern as there are a few on the market that just a hardtop seat with just 2 different vinyl

Regards,
Jim

What do the back sides of the bucket backs look like in a Post car?   I know the hardtops had the ribbed plastic piece in the back.

Jim,

Looking good. I did not realize that even the ribbed panel is different from hardtops and convertibles. Their ribbed panels extend all the way across the back to the sides. Did you also replace the molded seat foam? If so, where did you get it? I'll be working on my interior later this summer.

Thanks,
John

Hey Jim, that all really looks nice. Are those the spears from AMES? They look to fit well based on the pic.

Hi All,

Forgot to get a better picture last night, but yes they are different than the hardtop, will try to remember tonight.

Interior, foam and new bucket seat springs were from Legendary
Side moldings were from Ames and fit pretty good got one that is a little off where it goes to the seat bottom but could be the frame is a little tweaked as they were a spare set I had, either way most like fit as good as originals

Had all the interior installed by Junes Upholstery in Lapeer MI, good guy to have work done very reasonable, He even recovered my arm rest which came out pretty good considering what he had to work with


Thanks for the compliments, feels like a new car sit up about 2 inches higher than the old seats that were in it
