    I changed my rear seat out for one out of a 68 300 fast top and I want to verify it fits the way it should since the mounts are a bit different. Particularly the sides where the seat meets the sail panel...I have a gap there that doesn't look right.

    This..and the upper panel doesn't seem to quite line up with the mounting holes. This is installed in a 67 newport fast top.

    It looks low to me. Make sure it pushed all the way up into the upper brackets.

    my upper brackets are a bit different than the 300...working to make it fit correctly, but i think you are correct...sitting low. The are currently sitting in the brackets, but they are the newport brackets.

    I thought about that, but these seats were stock in the 300 I removed them from and they didnt have fillers in it...I will probably just make a panel that covers it for now. I think its just from the seat not sitting exactly where it needs to be and shrinking from age.
