    Seats Are In

    I installed my Corbeau TRS seats today.

    These were the only nice seats that I could find that clears the swing out. I got the crotch strap cut out also. I really liked the stockers, but I feel they were not the safest setup for a 5 point harness.

    Install should have been easy but I always have bad luck.
    Seats got delivered to the neighbors across the street so the bad luck begins.
    Drivers slider was catching on some of the seat material when sliding the seat all the way forward. A little velcro did the trick.
    Next I notice a ball bearing in the back seat. Pull the seat out and find where it goes and put it back in the slider.
    Put the seat back in a notice the eye bolt in the tunnel for my harness is rubbing the seat and now 2 ball bearings feel out. WTF

    Pull the damn seat out again. Put the bearings back in and use a punch to make sure the damn things don't fall out again.
    Put the seat back in and strip the threads in the floor on the right rear seat bolt. Luckily there is a nut on the bottom for the subs, but I will re thread that another day.

    Move the eye bolt. Seal the old hole.

    Go to put the nuts on the underside of the car where the boltd come thru the sub frame connectors and now the stock bolts are too short because the seat bracket is thicker.

    Off to Home Depot. Of course all the grade 8 stuff isn't in the right section and 20 minute later I find everything I need.

    Come home and put the bolts in and don't break anything

    After that multi hour fiasco I start on the passenger side. 10 minutes later I was done. LOL

    Well the final product is nice. The seats are a little lower than the stockers which is good for me.

    I haven't decided yet. My stockers have the dark inserts. The ones everyone wants. I may sell them. I may throw the fronts on the wifes GT. I hate those GT seats. They are way too high.

    I think it was about $1000 for everything shipped.

    I really like the stock seats also, but they are not safe to use with a 5 point harness setup.

    Ok I will stop modding until the fall. LOL

    They feel different. They sit a little lower. Saved about 27 lbs total.
    Stockers are more comfortable IMO.
