I wanted updated front seats, something that looked like it belonged. The newer mustang headrest didn't look good to me. And all of them the back seat never matched. It's been allot of work but adding 3 point belts for all four passengers feels a little bit safer.

That. Is. AWESOME.
I've always thought a fold-down rear seat would be cool for a coupe, too.

I installed 2004 Mach 1 front and rear seats in my son's 70 fastback in 2007. I have better pictures somewhere, but can not find at the moment. Just took these with cell phone
Very nice. That rear seat is slick with the fold down integration. I'm putting those same front seats into a 66 convertible.

Well here is some more pics, I ended up installing the front 3 point seat belt and hiding the retractor between the rear seat and the body in the gap. I also sent down the flange on the top of the rear seat and installed the package tray over it. And started installing the center console. ?

Acbar- How did you fill in the space between the seat and the panel, can you show a pic of it?

I didn't. Being that everything is black its not that noticeable. Only thing I did, was on the seat back side of things, I got a piece of particle board and black vinyl wrapped it.

Here it is with my old Tan 2004 seats:

I think it could be pretty easy to take the 2004 cover off the seat bottoms and wrap it around the stock 69 one. Not really sure what you could do to fix the gap in the seat back one. My car is not the nicest, so this was a huge upgrade from what was in it when I got it.

Thanks, I am going to get some floral foam form it out and make a fiberglass mould. I ended up putting my seatbelt retractors under the seats in the gap and I made some seat belt bezels for them.
