Question adjustment on 1929 open cab Pickup seat ?

One of the members told me there is an adjustment ( forward / backward ) on the 1929 open cab pickup. If there is I can not find it. Very tight fit. Please help.

Some remove the back cushion and "tie" the springs shorter, others make a new board and install 2-3" of foam covering and then upholster. All 29's are smaller than the 30-31's.

You ever get that claustrophobic feeling? I got in a friends ccpu once and thought I wasn't going to get out again! I'm 6'2".

Compress the seat spring to the correct height while installing the seat cover. Then no need to tie the springs.
