Default Rear seat support - which one is correct?

1959 Convertible

One of these supports is not right. The driver side has a sharp upward angle and the passenger side is level with the floor.
I'm guessing the driver side is deformed. Correct?

Driver side on left Passenger side on right

Your seat bottom hooks into these. One may be too straight but not necessarily. You will know when you put the seat bottom back in place. If it lifts out too easily, bend it back down slightly.

Like most trim, no two pieces are exactly the same so it becomes 'custom fit'. There is plenty of metal there to make adjustments. Even if you don't move the bracket, nobody can tell the difference once the seat is in. - Dave
