    My FiberFab Ford has small storage space under seat bottoms. They are hinged with 2 small hinges in the front to raise from the rear. I can’t raise them because they hit the seat back. I have to remove the seat back in order to get to the little storage spaces. I thought about using 1 larger hinge in the front of seat and making the pin in the hinge removable. I could then pull the pin and remove the seat. How do some of your seats work to get to that tiny little storage?

    I’ve been thinking about going to a junk yard and looking for a pair of bucket seats that would fit. More comfortable but don’t know how it would attach.

    Also finding a pair of 3 point seat belts. I think the top might fit on the convertible top bracket just behind the seat.

    Regarding the storage problem, there is a lot of empty space behind the bench beside the gas tank. Any ideas as to how build it?

    Mine hit the seat back but because it’s compressible foam I can still open the hatches by plunging mu hand down in ther, grabbing the “lip” of the seat and forcing it up. A little Armor All or similar on the vinyl makes it slide nice.

    I have been thinking and looking and it dawned on me that when sitting in the seat my knees bend way in front of the seat. That made me think I could reposition the seat forward without giving up any of the little precious little room I have. This morning I tried it and it works. Now the seat clears the seat back letting me flip it forward to get to the storage and I can’t tell the difference sitting in it. I suppose builder thought seat back means more room. It doesn’t. Now moving the seat back forward any wouldn’t work
