I am not sure where bounce Alabam is. Was that a typo? I am in Athens, AL.

Nice on the seats.
My 40/20/40s have been in there solid for 3 years now, so I will probably leave as is until I paint the interior.

@meankenny - Back when I first got the truck, my wife was a stickler for it having seatbelts in it before my daughter could ride in it. So upgrading to the seats with integrated belts rather than mounting belts in it was first order of business after I got it running. :slight_smile:

My dad has a 1990 Chevy truck. I love it. He knows if he ever decides to sell it, I get first shot at it. Runs great, but will need paint when I do get it. :slight_smile:
