I have a front bench seat in my EB and I like it because Im on my P's and always have alot of people in my car but the seat itself is pretty stuffed. What would be my best option for replacing it? I havent seen any bench seats around so would my best bet be buying some bucket seats and a console and converting it?

I'd convert it, probably increase the resale value slightly too as there much much more popular. Hit up FTG, might be able to hook you up with the crap you'll need!

If the fabrics stuffed just get some seat covers or if you have a bit of cash to throw at it get it retrimmed

Wow! A bench seat in a EB, was it an ex taxi?

I would get it covered or trimmed for now, if you need the extra passenger space. If not, just convert it to buckets.

I have a bench seat in the front of my torana, and i love it. Rareity (sp?) in a 4dr car these days, almost everyone rips them out.

Cheers

i'm hav'n the same trouble with my EF and i've found its more expensive and a pain in the a** to change over to buckets cos the brackets are different and i've been told the floor pan is also different (not sure bout that one). For about $150-200 just get the old one re-jigged and ya can get the ends raised abit so theres no roll off later on
