Front seat help needed!!

Guys I'm so close to completing the interior resto of my 1990 camaro. I'm having the seats recovered at a local upholstery place. They said the front seats are missing the headrest track/bracket that goes inside the upper seat back. Can anyone post a pic of what I'm looking for and/Or know where to get them??
thanks

Probably part #9 in the diagram,..... it is probably still riveted to the frame inside the seat, but they do become brittle & break apart sometimes.

Nope they are gone. The upholstery guy stripped out the foam and replaced it as well. It's about par for the course the P.O. butchered the interior

Re: Front seat help needed!!

Why am I thinking these are just a white nylon piece that slips in from the top of the seat? Are the early and late seats different? Am I thinking of a GTA Ultima seat? Hmm... Makes me want to go tear into a seat just to refresh my memory...

Update. I picked up my car this evening. The only piece that was missing was piece 8 the guide trim. I can find that pretty easily. Here is a pics of the interior. It raining here so it isn't the best pic

It is,.... The only thing that holds it to the frame is a little metal retaining clip that is riveted to the frame. The clip used as a headrest "stop".


cunning, Dude; That interior looks GREAT !
