Center console replacement

@scottydoesntknow holy ****. That was an amazing transformation. I didn't know you did all the work on your interior.

I know how you feel about the cup holders. I'm always holding mine on turns or telling my girlfriend to hold her coffee lol.

Not to mention the one closes to the engine is useless since the shifter would crash into it in second and fourth. Click image for larger version

@OP those seats look good IMO. Worth the 60 bucks if they hold up to light wear and fit well into the space designated for them.

My seats don't allow for the seatbelt to be pulled out if the clip is underneath/behind the seat so I have to open the door to buckle my seatbelt sometimes.yours don't look excessively wide at all though.

Lies, lies and slander!

Mine are not technically stock either I guess. But mine is how they look when they are mint, I have no problem with the stock seats honestly. They are pretty comfy and they are pretty good looking.

But the OP's seats came out good, a LOT better than I thought and for $140 shipped you can't beat that.

I drilled holes in the spot welds and rivets on the factory seat sliders and i got the stock brackets off of the factory seats. Then i measured the holes on my AM seats and welded the stock brackets to the bottom of the after market seat sliders and then i just put the sliders on and installed them into the car they fit perfect

Welding is a very very good skill to have when you wrench on cars. I have 0 and I need to work on that lol. I have a cheap fluxcore mig in the garage I need to teach myself to weld on. If it even still works, I got it 6 years ago and its sat in the garage the whole time lol.

Glad to hear those were so easy, they look good. Let us know how they feel and how the quality of the vinyl is.

And the power seat works in the drivers side?

Scotty yours is an exception like I said. But they are off a car that had around 40k miles so that's cheating.

Honestly what I don't like about them is how after a lot of use they will look like ****. My car is a daily driver but the seats are new so they don't show the stress on the material.

What should I do about a tear in my seat though? Should I try taking a needle to it?

That's what I'm saying! It looked like a pro job.

That was my first and only time attempting anything upholstery related. I'm just really good at following instructions and working with my hands because I fix these for a living.

Wait I didn't see this wha? My car's body has 116k on it... nothing I bought came out of a 40k mile car. Those seats have about 2-3k miles on them since I did them.

@scott
I'm saying those seats have very little wear thus your car having 160k miles is not true to the description of the seats.
I'm just saying they look damn good for stock seats. Normally the stock seats look like crap as we have stated in the past.

Great touch using the black seat belts. Do you have a pic. of the fab work to the seats? I got to do a set next week and wondering what I am getting my self in to. I'll bet taking the dash out was easier than the seats will be.
