Bought the front seats off a guy trying to retrofit them into a 68 Camaro o_O, he couldnt fit them apparently so I bought them for 250 cash (not bad considering one was wrapped in plastic). Went to pick them up off him and the ****** angle grinded the mounting brackets off one of the seats! Despite the fact that he neglected to mention that part, and the hour I drove to pick them up I bought them anyways.

Next day went to install and figured I would just swap the old seat for the passenger side seat and use the leather upper and lower, but go figure his seats were from like an 05 with no air bag sensor or seatbelt sensor >_<, so i had to tear the upholstery off the lower part to get to the sensor, then after that i had to take off the seat belt mount off the mounting frame to find it was a MASSIVE torx bit, and i didnt have one :mad: so had to go next door to my grandpas for like 30 mins to get one tool =p

Back home and with the passenger seat installed i went at the drivers seat. Had to replace the mounting frame(s) for my 09 ones cause of the "missing brackets" and find out i put the upper back of the seat on wrong because it wouldnt recline up >_< Put the seat back in then forgot side coverings on both seats, so had to take them both off, then once in i realized the drivers lower part of the seat had like a 2 inch gap from the back, took it out again to discover i messed up the position of some bar underneath the seat? But finally fixed it and assembled the seat back together...

So what should of taken like 30 mins to remove 4 bolts and 3 sensors in the two seats took like 4 hours thanks to some very unsuccessful persistant muscle car enthusiast. But hey it looks amazing =D

Ill have pics up tomorrow =)
