We wanted to use a bucket seat in the ‘34.  Something that could have been used in the late sixties.  We chose a ‘65 Impala SS seat.  It has a cool chrome trim piece – just the right look in this car.  The obvious one downside is they are too wide.  We are going to have to narrow them to fit, being careful not to look like a ‘70 Corvette seat






With everything removed, this is what we’ve got.


After taking about 4” out of the center, we have a good fit.  We now need to narrow the chrome strip across the top.







The upper section has been narrowed.










Need to dimple the screw hole like the original. 



Just made a little tool in the lathe, then pressed the trim piece with it. 
Just like the factory piece.


Seats are done.


Here’s a little sneak-peak!
