1971 VW Super Beetle - Rear Seat Upholstery Installation:
Video Overview:The interior of our 1971 Super Beetle restoration is coming together and we’re ready to get the rear seat in. The rear seat takes more than just upholstery as it is also can serve as a platform if the backrest is folded down. Our tech shows how the whole assembly, upholstery, rear seat board, and backrest carpet pieces in place. We also cover in detail the rear seat release cross bar for those that took theirs apart and can’t quite figure out how it goes back together, so watch and enjoy!
