Hello people!!!

I´m working on the Ford "T" called "Bad News" that was the protagonist of Rides, season 2 episode Rat Rod, where Burbank Choppers group brought to life.

 

I´am wondering which kit I could find any seats close to this:

I'm not positive as I haven't had the kit in years, but I think the custom seats in the AMT 49 Mercury are like those.

You guys Rock!!!!
As soon I read the tips from you, I was running open the boxes and got delighted to see both seat models. In fact, the seat from 49 Merc is closer than 49 Ford and with minor changes I can achieve the exact seat!
I have started to work on it and I´ll put the pictures here very soon!

Again, thank you for your help and quickly reply. :)
