    Bucket seat repair....

    I called up a friend of mine that works at a Ford dealer and asked him if he had any bucket seats.... for what he asked ?...my suburban.....he asked what was wrong with the ones in it so I told him one of the brackets was messed up... his reply was " can't you weld ? " and so a new project was born...





    Now I just need to get them recovered and I'll be all set.....

    Nice work, Mike!

    Good thing you had decent metal to weld to. My CJ-7 seat frames were too far gone and had to be replaced.

    If you noticed, I just backed off and did not even make an attempt to defend my comments - it's not going to alter the course of my life.

    The thread starter PM'd me with a few questions, so I guess it wasn't a complete waste of time, but I doubt I will be back. That site is populated entirely by children.

    Aluminum is that shiney stuff, right? You can weld that stuff? What's all this 'bout Spool Guns and spraying? Gee - ya learn sumthin' new every day!

    I'd love to comment further but I will refrain for the most part!

    I did come across a little strong, I guess but that's how I am.

    It's very rare that you will see me defend or edit my comments once they are challenged. If I screw up, I will own up, and I screwed up the comments on the 15A SG. Oh well. I have a lot of numbers running through my head 18 hours a day, 7 days a week. My mistake, I'll own it.

    Nice work on the seat Mike.

    Scott now I remember why I don't hang out in the weldingweb to much.

    Positive thing you'd decent metal to weld to. My CJ-7 chair frames were far too late and needed to be changed.
