64 bench seat assembly help (brackets for trim)

I recently got the trim for my front BENCH SEAT along with the brackets to attach to the seat itself.

Does anyone have a diagram or photos of how it all goes together or have recently rebuilt a seat and can assist?

I have the workshop manuals but there is nothing in them.

I have the upper bracket on so the main issue I'm having right now is how the bottom bracket fits to the seat frame

Thanks in advance.

I don't have a 1964 Full Size Assembly manual, because I never owned one. Generally the Assembly manual will have a page or two showing the tracks being installed to the seat and the seat being installed in the car, any fasteners their torque values and the order of assembly.

Have you looked in a book with this cover on it?

Thanks Dave.
The workshop manuals definitely don't but the one you mentioned is worth a shot (and will probably be worth having anyway).

The assembly manual should definitely have it in it. The only issue is some of the pages are not as clear as others, so hopefully it will have what you need. I am not sure why, but the reproduction assembly manuals just don't seem to have good print quality. Also it can take a little to figure out how the index works and how to actually find exactly what you are looking for.

There certainly seems to be a lot of them available; I'm guessing they're all pretty much the same qualityy.
As I like to do a lot of the smaller work myself I dear say it'll be a valuable reference inthe long run so worth the investment.

Anyone bought one off Ecklers, it looks like they actually make the version everyone is selling?
