    I'm not sure, bought them from guy from California , they were new, but never used. I asked him several times who made them and he couldnt remember or find receipt. I kinda took a gamble on them, but they look good. A little short maybe, or maybe cushions are too big, I dunno.

    I started this a few years ago, took lots of pictures as i disassembled them. I was kinda on the fence about whether to restore them or buy aftermarket seats. My thought was that my camaro may not be stock, but there are a few very noticeable things that make a camaro a 1970, one is the seats. They are 1 year only.

    the upper seat foam wasn't too bad, I had a rat get into the lower parts while in storage.

    I sandblasted the frames and put some POR 15 on them. Cant find pictures of them being fully sandblasted, but I got them clean.

    I found a guy selling some 1970 seat covers on the 70-73 camaro facebook page, took a gamble. He said he bought for a project and sold the project, never used them. I asked him today and he said they are TMI covers. ended up getting them for 200 shipped. thought that was decent deal. Actually cost a lot to ship them. '

    I ordered cushion from Classic Industries. I wasn't real impressed with their product. Had several missing pieces out of foam, and a glued section of a tear.
