We love building things that are easy and inexpensive. With a little fab work and some scrap, you can easily make a period-looking headrest for your classic. Can’t weld? You can still cut the pieces before taking them to a pro for final assembly.

It would be great to learn how to make seats like this car and other '50s and '60s racercars.

Would like to do something similar for a 1949 MG TC I am buying.  Can you better explain step 7?

I was wondering what the machine screws were attached to in the foam padding.  I made something similar for a Formula Ford I had, but simply wrapped the SFI padding in vinyl and glued everything to the bodywork befind the seat.

Is there a piece of metal or something solid (plywood) behind the SFI padding that the screws attach to?
