The driver's seat in my Tudor is in pretty bad shape and was told by a good friend who restores antique aircraft for a living that it would be easier to try and find a replacement rather than to try and fix it. I do not know how to weld, so I have to base his comment on his experience. The photos that I took probably do not show all of the twisting to the frame, but it is pretty bad - the result, I believe, of the 300+ former owner of the car. I am also having to replace the wood that sat directly underneath the chair.

I called our local Puget Sound T parts collector, Bill Bender, and he didn't have any. Does anyone have one that they would be willing to sell, preferably local, or a solution? Thanks.

I will disagree with your aricraft friend. These are NOT that common, and I would fix it, or have it fixed. They were only used on the Tudor, and only on the Driver's side, so hard to find today.
300+ lbs?? Better get your frame springs re-arced, and have your frame checked for sag (not a joke, I'm being serious!!).
