Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

    Hi Terry,
    Glad to see you made it. I'll be looking forward to seeing some posts from you. remember, we cover a lot of different stuff here and we have a category for interior trim and upholstery work. So if you have any pics of the custome or restoration work you have done, post the pics.

    BTW, I just stripped and old '53 F-100. It had a good front seat in it that is not broken down. The upholstery is no good aa well as any padding. The springs and basic structure are sound and would be really good for reworking. I hate to junk it because I know that people look for these once in a while. I am sure it will fit from '53 to '56 and maybe even more. I have the complete set up including the tracks, sliders and mounts. If you know of anyone who needs one let me know. The thing is kind of awkward to keep around when I don't need it.

    Thanks for the kind words. I'll post some pics of Pegysu as soon as I get time. I've been so busy at work (I work 2 jobs) so time is at an all time premium these days.

    Dave, the original seats aint worth anything to me. I take all the springs out and throw them away and weld in steel then use different grades of foam for the proper seat density. I'll post some pics soon, with this site I can post pics of my buddy's Mustang and my other buddy's '54 panel truck that we're putting on an S10 frame.

    Soon, I promise.
