Anyone know of a GOOD upholstery company that can handle complete seat restoration for a 1942 Dodge FireTruck? The seat is just the rusty metal springs at this time...Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Check out your local automotive upholstery shops. I had a seat re-done for a '42 1.5 ton Chevy at a local car shop... I just tracked down the canvas for them and they did a great job. Depending on how authentic you want it, you can also use modern coils and foam under the cloth... which, as far as this 45 year-old's keaster is concerned, is way better from a "comfort" standpoint than those old horse hair and iron springs. If you can't find a local shop, Hemmings Motor News is an excellent source of info on re-upholstering car seats. http://www.hemmings.com/
