Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:


    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

My original back rest is splitting at the seams and I found an upholstery shop that will take a look at repairs. My problem is getting it
removed from the seat frame. I actually crawled into the trunk (with the trunk lid and spare still on the car...put THAT on your bucket list!)
and thought that if I removed the lower tacks and vertical wood screws, it would release. Well after an hour of contortions, I found that my solution was not the answer. I can rotate the back rest up from the inside (with seat cushion removed), but the material is somehow connected to the frame at the package tray area. Anyone have some guidance?

Usually the back rest has some "hidem welting" along the top of the seat for trim. It is tacked or stapled on. Open up the welting to expose the tack or staples and remove them. There will probably some tacks or staples under the welting also. Remove those and the cushion should come out.

Thanks trjford8
I climbed back in after releasing the seat frame from the floor pan supports and was able to pull the whole seat frame forward which gave me a good view of the are where the fabric attached to the seat frame. It looks like 2 pieces attach to the wooden seat frame...a short vinyl looking piece that appears to be meant to move with the seat adjustment and the actual back rest fabric...back in I go...

The short vinyl piece can be removed from the back part of the seat and left attached to the package shelf. That vinyl piece is there to keep things from falling down on the floor from the package shelf.
