    Contacted seller on eBay that was selling for the lowest price on thurs, still haven't heard back, cause I don't want to wait 4-6 weeks. The negative reviews are telling me I won't hear anytime soon. Decided the foam looked simple, so here we go...

    1. Bought a block off Amazon, 44lb strength, for auto seats
    2 cut to size ( see pics)
    3. Gutted it ( hardest part) used box cutter, probably better tools out there. Getting new canvas tomorrow to glue to the foam, then hog ring on. Looking good so far. Got to replace some material on the seat frame too.

    Read electric carving knives work well on foam. Anybody else confirm that?

      Heard that too, don't have one yet. Gutting it is the hardest to, and I don't know if it would work any better

          It worked good! Just a few small wrinkles from the covers sitting awhile, they came out with a hair dryer

            I just noticed my 67 Charger doesn't have the seat emblems on the driver's seat, I believe there is one on the pass seat ( I'll have to look again) is that normal? They are original

            All four seats should have the medallions. I was missing the one on the drivers seat too. Took me a while to find one.

            There's no hole in the original cover either, it just dawned on me. My car was parked on 77

            Here at 1:38 neither seat has them, first time I've noticed this, I wonder why?

                The driver seat at 1:31 in the lower right corner, a seat medallion. Not sure but can tell you my car is all original and the seats have never been touched, just covered. The driver seat is the only seat missing the medallion due to excessive wear but you can see where it had been. Either seats have been reupholstered or the original purchaser did not want that option.

                I know almost everyone that has ridden in mine in the pass seat, has complained about it. Wonder if it was an option to delete it mid production or something?

                A friend of mine that sold these cars from a dealership in the 60s mentioned that some people chose not to have the medallion on all or some seats due to it bothering some people. Especially women since it sat right where the bra strap would be.

                  Front seat medallions are recessed below the surface, so, you should not feel them. Rear seats are not, only the rear passengers feel uncomfortable...some what of a good idea....

                  BTW, still haven't heard from the cheapest seller in eBay, I'm guessing supply problems, but at least admit it...

                  Yeah, took a long time before they answered me on a question I had for them. Thinking they only monitor the "important" messages like if something sells.

                  The medallions were standard on R/Ts and Chargers.

                  Any headrests out there? One of those options and uncommon sights.
