To Rich in Blackfoot, Idaho....the front seat upholstery and springs have been gone for many years....The wood frame was in excellent condition. The Back seat upholstery on the seat cushion was in shreds and spring was bent and broken. The only original remaining upholstery was the back rest of the back seat and it was in very poor condition.
To mark Lynn....the vintage leatherette came from Big Z Fabrics in California...see my 2017 thread.
It needed upholstery and I did not want a "new" look.

The clutch appears to need replacing so my next project is to remove the engine, replace the clutch and bands and install rings while the engine is out.
