The Corbeau ultra ss is only 220 a seat!! I tlaked to a guy neer me who has corbeaus and he says they one of the best seats on the line. Of coarse he drives civics and is a ricer owner, but the seats look and feel awsome eve though they dont recline, I have a bench seat an it is at the same angle that the ultra ss is at so it wont bother me any. The bench seat dosnt recline either. I think i am going to get them.

Need money!

My subs are for sale, buy them please!!!

Another Explorer seat convert here! Hardest part was drilling the holes and leveling the seats so there was no binding.

83-88 Thunderbird TurboCoupe seats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a 88 TC parts car with the porno red interior with excellent seats in them. Guess what they are going into They will actually match. They have side bolsters and leg support pullouts. They keep you planted in the seat perfectly. Never felt akward when I am hammering the bends hard in my street car, you are right there and glued in!! They also feel like you got off a recliner after a 4 or 5 hour trip, VERY comfy! Highly suggested!!

After all the trouble I had with busted brackets, I replaced the seats in my 84 with a set from PRP Racing. The suspension-type seats are 10X better than anything else. Cost was a tad under $300 shipped. I did mount them to the re-welded stock brackets for a while, but they're now mounted to my rollcage. Pics are at supermotors.net, JSM84

Only one hole lined up for me, so I had to drill the other three. I did bend the front bracket a little to get it to contour a little better to the floor. Also, I would attach the front two bolts first, then drill the rear and shim level as needed. Other than that, it was pretty simple. I also put in a separate fuse block for the seats and my CB so I didn't have to run too much wire or tap into another source.

I went to the local pick and pull. All they had were worn out seats. I decided to repair the seats that came with my Bronco. They're going to replace the passenger cushion and the drivers back, plus redo the drivers armrest. All for $870. But it will be back to the orignal condition done in leather. Material was something like $500 because they had to have the little holes punched in the leather and we went with i/2 of a hide so there will be some extra. I had the drivers cushion redone in 1998 by the same shop and it's holding up way better than the factory job.

That was the good news and I condsider it money well spent. The bad news is the estimate to respray the front hood. The original paint has all peeled off, leaving me with a gray primed ulgy front end. They are going to take the hood off and strip it down to bear metal, fix any blemishes, pits etc in the hood, primer, paint, clear coat and sand. The cost for this Ford lasp of quality....$1,065.

The seats get repaired Monday and the painting will be done Wednesday. I don't mind spending a little money on the car. I've bought it new and have put over 100,000 miles on it as it is my daily driver. I just went through the California smog test with flying colors and my Bronco is purring like a kitten.

Bought these from Cabelas to keep my seats from getting entirely destroyed from mud and so forth. They've held up pretty well for over two years, and I think I paid about $30 bucks for the pair. Not the greatest fitting but they get the job done, and I like the camo look.

I put black leather seats in out of 98 Mustang gt. The driver is power. I had to build custom mounts that bolted to the stock floor mounts, but the seats are extremely comfortable. Ill get pictures up soon.

My 88 Mustang GT had the leg pullouts as well. I forgot about that. That was so nice on long trips. I would set the cruise, pull out the leg support and tuck my feet under the pedals. I could full stretch out and I'm 6'.
