The S1 seats would look more at home in my S1 EB Xr8 than the ED Ghia leather & velour seats i am currently fitting. I might get around to fitting the s2 door trims as well one day.

It would be interesting what they want for the full leather ED seats. Last wrecker i spoke with wanted $600 for a ED Ghia full set, the back seat top was badly damaged, all headrests were coming apart & drivers seat needed a lot of repair work. I was quite shocked with the asking price!

I picked my setup off ebay, with console, door trims, very little damage or wear on any of the seats, perfect console lid, and some other trims & plastics for just under $500 last year.

Cheers

Buy a wreck cheaply that has the seats you want, then part the rest of the car out & scrap metal what you can't sell? I've done that a few times to get parts i wanted. ;)

Those seats look nice, but I don't think a Full Size Bloke like me would fit comfortably LOL

yeh they're an effort to get into but once ur in ur in. Iv'e had this seat in 4 cars. Awesome seat, very supportive. For the husky chap, the side bolsters keep things in place!!

pretty staight forward, factory seat runners, used 2mm angle iron with HT bolts as per QLD roads mods.
Fitting aftermarket seats is easier when u use the factory seat rails and then bolting the seat on top using box tube or angle iron.
Just consult a rego auth approved engineer for guidance
