Ford Model A Pickup Restoration November 2010

Currently I am concentrating on the rebuilding of the leather seats.

The disassembly of the seats goes rapidly. Unfortunately, I have noticed that a few springs can no longer be used. Luckily I could find replacements and thus the project is not blocked.

My big centipede - I glued all the old holes with toothpicks.

The seat frame I sanded lightly and then treated it against wood worm and fungal attack. Therefore the seat should last for another 80 years ;-)

The steel frames of the seat and backrest are de-rusted and repainted.

Finally, I've painted all 61 springs with POR15 gray. I let them dry and start with the assembly next month.
