Default Almost free seats

Found a leather couch someone was throwing away. The leather on the back looked new. I cut that out and took the foam from the seat backs. I had an old sheet of plywood that I used. We tore the old rotted seats up and made templates. I had to buy 4 t-nuts so it was $1.50.

The brown is like the brown on my Super Duty. It looks black most of the time unless the light hits it just right.

Blue would be nice for the summer 'cause it would stay relatively cooler, but I'm at least trying to stick to a flat black paint scheme, so black my seat will be. (Sound like Yoda, I do? Hmm? (Yoda laughter))

Yeah its almost like a combination of the light brown from the Lariat and the red clay like in the King Ranch.

Can't beat free. Hopefully it'll last a while in the sun and it won't tear or crack over time fast.
