Just want to help anyone out by telling how I removed my bench seat headrests out of my 1970 Duster 340. These headrests have one long (RH) and one short (LH) chrome post.Raise the headrest all the way up. Get a spray can of Kel's Heavy Duty Pure Industrial Grade Silicone (or equivalent) and install the straw tube. Now, insert the tube 1-2 inches down the backside of the right-hand post aiming straight down. The retainer latch inside the seat is on the RH post of both the driver's and...
This is a step-by-step documentation of my instrument cluster overhaul project. Not all steps may be applicable to your project. Mine included replacing a malfunctioning speedometer, replacing a defective aftermarket tach (I had originally replaced the vacuum gauge with a tach and it worked for a couple of days and died), and replacing the factory analog gauges with new replacements.
I also upgraded the speakers of my RetroSound factory-looking modern audio system by upping the power...
1) install the floating roller into the long slot of the window mount. I should mention that in the picture the roller is upside down the black roller actually goes into the mount not the white one.
2) install the window mount into the quarter panel.
3) install the regulator. Note you will need to rack the regulator to one side to install with ease.
4) there is a small white roller on the arm of the regulator that needs to go into the slide attached to the inside of the interior panel.I...

Making a clean hole in a carpet- especially for seat belt bolts and seat mounts. With out a razor blade.
This bezel was pretty rough. I removed all paint and chrome via careful wet sanding and brushing. I heard brake fluid would have done the job overnight, oh well live and learn. I take small projects like this home and work a couple hours in the wee morning, then a couple hours on the car shell during the day while at work. As you can see, crack repair was necessary. I conducted bond tests with several adhesives including epoxy, Super type glues and E6000. E6000 had the best adhesion by...

All the credit for this goes to Peter Bates. The brackets supplied by Year One are a great product but come without instructions. Peter did his install and was kind enough to supply the instructions for us.

Sorry team I'm a E body guy but I thought I'd let you know Intel on this subject.Seat relocation brackets bought from Year One.These brackets in the front hole positions gave me nearly three inches more leg room. Great for a 6’4” guy. Wish I would have thought...
I recently added bucket seats to my 69 Swinger restoration. I bought a pair of used 68 buckets with headrests. My interior is white and the headrests blue. Problem: I need a color change and restoration. So here's what I did.1) Since mine were in pretty good shape all I had to do was a color change. Very carefully remove the chrome band. A blow dryer or heat gun can be useful. DO NOT APPLY MUCH HEAT JUST ENOUGH TO LOOSEN THE OLD GLUE. DON'T PULL ON THEM AS THE VINYL WILL TEAR ESPECIALLY IF...
How to Make your own Custom Gauge cluster
This was on my '72 Demon's keyless latch. I don't know if it's the same as the keyed latch.
1.-- Remove the two screws holding the latch in place for better access.
2.-- Push the catch so it is held in the closed position.
3.-- Find the small slot in the bottom of assembly toward the door.
4.-- With a wire ( I was able to use a small pick) depress and hold the small spring loaded
tab. You can then insert a small wire into the hole in the front of the latch which will retain...
Hi all, thought I would share with you the installation of my new seat covers. I purchased them from Legendary.I took the old covers off but kept them for reference later. The foam seemed in good shape considering how old they are but smelled a little musty so I used Lysol and sprayed them and let them air out for a few days. Sat them out in the sun also to air out. All smells were gone and I stuck my nose in them and they smelled fresh before I installed my new covers.The first few pics...
