    Sounds like the seats are fitting decently. Where are the pics?

    The man from Oklahoma is offering good advice. Also, sit the seat on the floor. Measure from the floor to the seat cushion....for a deuce hot rod, this measurement needs to be in the 4" range....you might get away with a smidgen more but high seats will make you look like you are sitting on a plastic bucket. A rule of thumb that I use is that the top of your shoulder should be level with the window sill. IF your pocket protector is showing, you're sitting WAY too high. If your girlfriend is sitting on your lap, her shoulder can show above the window sill. If she is sitting on your lap facing you, forget the rules.

    I always give great consideration to all advice, even that given on girlfriends. "The man from Oklahoma" I believe is a Californian and my family here in Oklahoma goes back well before the Sooners got here. Great, great grandfather was buried on Wichita tribal land due north of Don in 1902. Don is a most welcome addition to the state's population and is living on Kiowa, Comanche, Apache land. He lives in a town where there is a bank on nearly every corner. Oil money in every one of them. LOL. Thanks for the advice.

    Big difference. Thanks for the info about a bank on every corner, he must have moved there to sell more deuces!

    Robot, I dropped the rear of the seats one inch after reading your post. That is all I could get. They sure sit great. Now, back to the wiring. I will try to post a photo soon.

    The Buick seats will power up and down, tilt forward and rearward. You should be able to find a perfect spot for the old tush.

    In my 39 coupe, we had to work on the Glide seat quite a bit to get it to sit lower....bugs me to sit too high in a vehicle. I also think that back and down is more comfortable position. My wife's Escalade seat position sucks.....all the way back and all the way down still has my shoulder top about 4" above the door sill. I look like a 7' tall person sitting in it.....not cool.

    Trying to post photo, but can only access forum page. Won't let me go to home page. Am trying to create album so that I can import photo, just get there from forum page. Any ideas?

    Why are you trying to access another forum page, or the home page? Simply go to the "Quick Reply" box at the bottom of your thread, click "Go Advanced" in the lower right corner, then on the new page scroll down to "Additional Options" and in that big box, click "Manage Attachments". Once there click "Add Files", then "Select Files" to get to the picture files on your computer. Once you pick the picture you want left click it to highlight that file, click "Open" and it will be named in the file box. Click "Upload File", and "Done". Click "Submit Reply" and you're done. Sounds like a lot, but it's very straightforward once you get in the groove.

    Yep, the file size has to be down in the KB range to post. In my default Windows picture viewer I simply open a picture, click "Edit, Organize or Share" in the upper left corner action bar, and once open select the picture or group of pictures that I want to resize and open the "Edit" tab. If "Resize" is not on the bar then it's in "Properties". Click "Resize", select "1024" or "Medium, for attacking to e-mail, etc" and it will save a new copy beside the first. Simple and easy, no additional programs to open.
