B seat ideas

I got a B, with a belly cutter, and was wondering about different ideas on a new seat. The seat thats there is just a piece of plywood on top of foam, as a seat cushion to sit on, with a metal back rest. I am 6'-2", and the problem is that the clutch would be at mid calf when I stretch my leg out, and the steering wheel is about 6" from my chest, which puts the "cushion" and back rest at an uncomfortable location in relation to the clutch pedal. I think I need to move the seat back, and up, about a foot. Anyone have any cheap and easy ideas for a seat? Thanks in advance

If you go for comfort and are not particular about maintaining the looks of your B, go to a junk yard and get a comfortable bucket seat out of a small car. You may have to be a bit innovative on the mount.

I got a AC - B late last fall and it has a beat up Ford pan seat on it. It is hard to get on and uncomfortable. I am planning on making a new seat as follows.
I am taking a treated 4 X 6 laid vertical and at least 2' long laid on each side of the origional seat base with a notch cut in the bottom of the 4 X 6 to clear the rear seat base metal. On top of these "sliders" I will make a seat of plywood base and padding along with a back attached to the plywood. By making the plywood stick out from the padding in the corners I can drive a screw into the "slider" at a comfortable place and still have it easily moveable if someone shorter needs to drive it. I hope this helps you.
