    I am having my front seats re-done, and I need to clean up the tracks. I wanted to take the tracks apart and sandblast, and paint them. But it looks like the rivets are permanent. Anyone had any luck cleaning them up???

    thanks

    Those rivets are permanent. I did have mine sandblasted and coated, however. Turned out great; maybe the inside is not coated but you cannot see it. Here's a pic of the parts just after coating. DuPont Vulcan Black and Dupont Silverdilla. Wheels are Dupont Concrete gray. Yes, I have a pic for everything. Word.

    Hi All:

    Ryan, if you need any bucket seat parts, I have some extra bits left over from my body tub swap project.

    Just let me know.

    Regards,

    I used POR-15 (black) on my seat brackets/slides and it came out awesome. I just lightly sanded the few spots of surface rust and painted it on while the seats were in place. Looks nice and shiny new for about $30 and 30 minutes of time. Here's a pic (kinda dusty) after about a year.
