Well, put in my version of buckets and console tonight. Now it can all come out for cleaning, man those seats are dirty but otherwise very mint. Can always go back to the trusty bench, but these are growing on me already. Seats are now non adjustable but I got them where I want them.......probably will experience some minor ptsd over the brackets I made, but all’s well that ends well.

They’re from a ‘69 Lincoln Continental Coupe.

If that is the nylon upholstery like I had in a 68 mercury, it wore like iron and always cleaned up fantastic. Just the sweat from a cold bottle would leave a stain but always cleaned up easy. BTW the salesman at the time referred to the material as "Panty cloth".

lol I love that!
Next time honey and me go for a ride....
“Honey, no need to bother with your panties, they’re already in the truck.”

I have a set of leather seats from my parts car Mark VIII but these just seem to look more at home in the Green Goblin. Truth is I like the center console most of all, hoping to add cup holders to it somehow, maybe floor level at the front.
I’m not really sure how to best clean my panty’ seats. (That’s what they are called from now on). lol
Is the baking soda idea real or myth? Has anybody dyed panty seats before?

I actually pulled them out of the car on a super hot sunny day and gave them scrubbing with a little dawn and a lot of water, hosed them off with garden hose. Drug them in garage at night put a fan on them with dehumidifier running. They honestly looked so bad didn't think I had anything to lose. Try at your own risk, your seats are 30 years older now than when I did mine. I have not heard of the baking soda thing, and I wouldn't recommend dyeing.

thanks. I ended up using some of that upholstery cleaner in a can stuff and wiping them down. Really surprised st the results. Clean, smell good and the colour evened out. I’ll be happy with panty seats until they go to the upholstery shop someday.
