« Part 4: The body of the Hot Rod is the bucket.... Part 5 of Hot Rod FORDS series Part 6: What do we call the back of the T-Bucket? »

The seats…

Well at first I was going to do something similar to the beaut dowel seats in Bruce’s [aka htl] VW Thing BUT.

I had a look around the internet images of some beautiful Hot Rod Ford T-Buckets

and they either had a fully upholstered high back bench seat or fancy bucket seats;

I decided on bucket seats.

- crowie

Any pictures taken in portrait should be rotated 90° CW (depending on how you held the camera)... even if it doesn’t seem to change on your PC viewer. Then Preview to ensure you have the correct orientation…

If you can remove the metadata off the picture using a picture editor you will see the correct orientation on your PC. Rotating the picture (exit and view again) should have changed the metadata.
