Started my interior restoration yesterday by tearing down the new sets I got.

Now I need to pull the seats out of car and tear them down. I think Im am going to take all 4 seats and put together the 2 best sets of backs and bottoms to make 2 nice ones. I also need to pull the rear seat, door cards, and headliner. Im hoping to work on that a little this week, but its hard without the garage.

Do you run a square wheel setup or spacers on the fronts?

Finally started on the seats. It will be a slow build but Im trying to do a little bit here and there as I have time. Last night I cleaned and smoothed out some previous repairs on the seats.

I believe I have 10mm spacers. I think 8 will work but 10 is easier to source.
