Guessing those dimples are there for the seat cover ties.
I would cut two tiny slits where u want them and then smack it from the inside with a flat head screw driver about the right size to push them out.
We will build it if it comes.RustabusParticipantJanuary 1, 2021 at 1:58 pmPost count: 2794
Not feeling it!☹️ The seat frame I’m assuming is 53-55 is way different than the Split frame I’m trying to make a brace for. I made tabs, curved the brace, added dimples and then test fit. Uh, well, no rear spring seat frame for the tabs to attach to and I’m also noticing that the top seat bar is much more square than the later version. Thinking it’s more likely my seats need a straight slotted channel on the bottom with no tabs. Not sure on dimples?RustabusParticipantJanuary 1, 2021 at 4:48 pmPost count: 2794
Given that it is inside seat covers, nobody will notice but all the little details matter. Think I’m gonna make a straight cut channel to width and modify later if needed. Big waste of time! Glad my garage is kinda organized so I can take one step forward and two steps back!!!?!? Wait, what?😉John JonesModeratorJanuary 1, 2021 at 5:33 pmPost count: 10882

Round 2!!! Way easier, just gotta cut the tube and bang it to a smaller diameter and cut to length. Simple, ( I hope!) 👍😀RustabusParticipantJanuary 2, 2021 at 5:57 pmPost count: 2794

So, I blew off this project last week when the back bars didn’t fit. Got back on it a couple days ago fit wider bars so that the seat tops can flip all the way forward without hitting the bottom frame. Fit TONS of spring clamps, welded up springs and made up a bunch of new little metal straps that hold the springs to frame…………… called it good for now and dropped it off for powder coat!!!😀😀😀RustabusParticipantJanuary 12, 2021 at 1:58 pmPost count: 2794
Uh, progress! 😉 Seats are gonna be outta the garage at least!!😀RustabusParticipantJanuary 12, 2021 at 2:00 pmPost count: 2794
