Seat Spring Repair

by Gary


I am working on my 49 Studebaker 2R5 truck. It has a pin latching type seat. There is a band that goes around the outside on the front to hold the springs in place. A couple of the springs are rusted so bad that they don't have any strength. Can anyone tell me if there is a place to get replacement springs? Is there a way to make new bands, the long front one and 2 shorter ones on the sides? I am also wondering if it is possible for me to change the entire seat to a newer type slide seat if I'm not able to repair the original one, and if so any suggestions?

I have already done a search to see if there were any previous post on this subject, but didn't come up with anything. Thanks for any advice you can give me.
