what's wrong with this picture
#1
Looking at the rear seat I have a gap on each side of the seat back. It's been this way since I have had the car. Don't know if this is the correct back or not. It is a non fold down seat.

Have you had it out and inspected it?
Maybe something is bent or broken? Maybe it has been well usedAngel[/i]

Roy i had it out and nothing appears bent or broken. There is about an inch to inch and a half gap on either side.

Jim if I remember correctly (been a bit since I've seen my rear seat) There are plastic flaps that are attached to both sides of the rear seat with some of the seat material which cover this area I can't get to my rear seat to look, I'm almost sure but could be wrong..If i'm wrong then the problem is the seat frame...or the side panels..You could shim out the side panels at the bottom where they mount to the floor.

Your missing the metal camera case trim that goes on either side of the seat on the non-fold down seats.

There are 4 pieces all together that go around the seat, 2 on top it's split in halve with camera case finish and 1 on each side.

The upper seat cover also has a flap that helps cover the gap between the lower and upper part of the seat frames

I will try and find a picture

these are the 2 parts that fill the gap in that area.
the one side that sticks up is overlapped by the plastic quarterpanel interior trim.

Thanks 72. Knew something did not look right. The flaps are there but not the other pieces. Will have to try and find them.

Here is some discussion about the gaps in the seat back found on the 429megasite. This site is dedicated to the 71 Mach 1 429CJ/SCJ and has been a great help to me over the years. Hope it helps.

Exactly... you´re missing this 2 parts (at least if your car is an sportsroof body...

I dont know if that parts are available there... i happend to have an extra set.. God knows why as my car is the only fastback in my country...

But if this parts are not available i´m sure is a typical piece someone with a model and a little of imagination can reproduce it easily...

Do those flaps tight some insulation too??
