Proper height for seat pan

#1 Post by ScottBerry » Sat Nov 25, 2017 6:42 pm

Hoping members can help me position my seat pan for my 1960 coupe 356b t5

Want to position for the proper height and angle.

Hoping for image box A I can obtain the height of the front of the heal pan from the top of the heal pan to bottom of seat. This is measurement #1 and height of seat pan from top off parcel shelf to bottom of seat pan measurement #2

As well for the front of the seat pan does it rest on the little ledge as shown in image box B? Any help appreciated.

Scott - did you get your question answered? The folks at Restoration Design in your neck of the woods may be able to help.
It took me a while to figure out exactly what we are looking at, but finally saw that it is the rear seat area and the heel panel is the vertical panel behind the front seats.

Greg thank you for your question and yes it was Alex at restoration design that helped fill in the blanks for me. Shaped and in position.
