I'd like to take a couple minutes to explain a little of what went into making each seat. Each seat consisted of a double bottom cushion, double top cushion, a pedestal and then an 1/8" dowel to mount the entire seat assembly to the floor of the car body. I decided to make the cushions from maple so I would have some color contrast. Once I cut the basic size to each top and bottom cushion, I then had to do the final shaping by hand by carving, filing and sanding each one to the final shape. I had to cut each back cushion at a 5 degree angle so when the cushions where glued together the backs would lean back like a regular seat.
I built each base from walnut and glued each seat to a separate base. I then drilled and glued a short 1/8" dowel in each base. After all 52 seats were built, I layed out the location on the floor of each car for the proper location of the seats and drilled a mounting hole for each seat and glued in place. I sprayed a couple coats of finish on all the interior parts while I had easy access.
