I've got a pretty good idea of what I'm getting into. I owned a 250C for several years and did my own work on that. I'm just glad it runs and isn't a rust bucket. Thanks for the welcome, those who are welcoming.
It means, that the seats will have no stuffing left in them....Just vinyl draped over springs...

The untreated horsehair, holds moisture and turns to dust.....This in turn rots out, all the cotton string holding the seat skins together and will also cause all the seat springs to rust....

This will cause you to have to either spend a few thousand on upholstery or running all over the pick n pulls....looking for foam or treated horse hair pads....New seat skins and springs....

The describing of the drivers seat.....Tells me this is already happened...

Again, I also agree....the pool noodle idea's are getting old....

Remove the battery and battery box....then let me know if it is still isn't a rust bucket.....Also the heavy rubber under coating....Is also very well known for hiding rot/rust...

It is also amazing, when folks start to tell the facts about these cars, they become the bad guys....Not the warm welcoming type...I am sorry I don't care what ones finical situation is...I don't bend over for anyone....They are known facts and why should one person's car be treated different then the others....
