    Looks good Mike! Did you leave the inner pivot points bolted on the plastic back, inside the covering, and cut new holes? I did mine that way and you don't see it at all. I wish I could cover the outer brackets, I have them bolted on the outside. I might use the black carpet from my original black LX seats like Iwashmycar did to cover them up.

    I was planning on bolting them inside, but i left the pivots in the car. I forgot i would need them. When i go bolt the seats in, i'll install them behind the carpet and cut ne holes.

    I'm not worried about the outer brackets being seen as i never fold my seats down anyway. Nobody will ever sit in the back seat either....but i just want it to look nice :)


    I like the idea of installing the carpet on the rear, but i had no black carpet to use. I sold my OEM black seats to my friend and gutted his stock blue seats. I could buy material, but i want to see what the final product looks like first.

    I also want to install the front small Sn95 headrests in the rear seats when i put my halos in the fronts...but how did you secure the rests? Did you just slip them in and that's it?

    Oh there's a lot of mechanical work to do to. I have a t-5 conversion I should be doing now.

    Rebuilt t-5, King Cobra clutch, new flywheel and AL driveshaft all waiting to go in.

    They retain full functionality just like Fox seats AND fold down like stock. Ignore the dirtyness...i'm still working on the interior as you can see :)

    Color match is not that bad. I don't mind it.

    Wow - they fit right into the interior. I'm a bit suprised.
    Did you find a pair of front seats yet?

    Negative on front seats yet, but there is a lot to do. I went through the entire interior today and some of the screws are incorrect and/or rusting and i just want to replace it all.

    After stepping back into my '03...i want my Foxes interior just as clean and perfect....so i'm going to round up some more parts - carpet, screw kits, headliner, misc trim peices, etc.

    No rush for seats since they would kinda be in the way I guess

    The front headrests will slip right inside the slit on the plastic piece on the seats. I was able to insert it in between the plastic backing panel and the seat foam part. I thought about using some kind of bracket to make them "functional" but haven't done anything on it.

    Seats look really good Mike!

    Came out nice! Do you actually have the SN95 latches under the seat holding it down?


    I might have some front matching seats soon...and even an SN95 steering wheel. We'll see how that looks when i get it in

    I have tilt..so i'd like to keep it. I've seen pics of an SN95 wheel on a tilt column and i think it will work ok.

    Will find out soon enough

    Are they wet in the picture? Let me know if you get those white marks off and they should look great in the car with the rears and SN steering wheel.

    I had just wiped them down with this stuff i use on my GT's seats. It does an awesome job of getting wrinkles out and keeping the seats soft so i wanted to use it on these seats. I started working on the white spots. I got some off and then i stopped because i had to go finish changing the Water Pump on my GT before it started raining. I just finished up that job just now, so i'll work on the spots some more tonight while TS Hanna rages on outside


    BTW...do you remember what year car they came out of?

    Those seats go with the decor quite nicely. :D

    What exactly are you using on the seats?

    Meguiars GOld Class Rich Leather conditioner/cleaner.


    I'll prob put the seats int he car next weekend.


    I have a set of halo headrests I want to put on these. I tried to see about getting them recovered in dark charcoal leather but it's way too expensive. I think for the meantime i'll pick up some DC dye and dye them
