    Hello all,
    I am putting together my 70 Camaro seats and found out I am missing three roller wheels out of the tracks. They slide out in the wheels go inside a little bracket. Can these be purchased somewhere or made without buying new seat tracks? I need both pieces. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much

    It doesn't look like any reproduction sites sell just the wheels. You might be able to buy something close at a hardware or hobby store.

    Are you also missing the glide parts?

    Do you mean the thing that the roller sits in? Not sure what you were talking about. Can you post a picture?

    If you have one roller maybe someone with a lathe can take dimensions from it to make the other 3.

    You may not, but if they are 1970 tracks (only year the front-back adjustment handle is on the side of the seat instead of the front) you should.

    They are plastic and disintegrated pretty easily. I salvaged a couple out of mine and reverse engineered and created a 3D CAD file from them and print out on a 3D printer replacements. Not sure if GM ever even sold replacements. Once they are gone, the tracks get sloppy right-to-left.
