Maybe I have issues

I thought it was a good idea to have leather....Easy to clean and wipe down...But I hate a cold @$$ when I get up in the morning so the solution....1999 Cadillac cattera seats......Heated power and leather ......Had to remember NOT to hook up ALL of the wires(Built in Airbags)(That would have left a mark !!!!) All new mounts but worth it ....Bonus is the wife now loves it!!! Will post photos when the waterproof lockboxes underneath are done!!! Nothing is ever easy!!!!

Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated!

They look good.... whatever they are.

Big question - my seats see outdoor conditions too much. All these swaps are to indoor only seats. Problems?

Here is a unique set of seats for a YJ. These are out of a 2004 S40 Volvo. They are suede and fabric so that they will still breath. The bolsters are just right. Hold you snug and yet do no interfere with you getting in and out of the rig. It took a lot of cutting and welding, but definitely worth it. Had to lower the risers approx. 5" to retain the proper height. These are heated, but I am waiting on the schematics to arrive before I start probing around. I'm too chicken about inadvertently setting off the side bolster airbags. The passenger side will get done shortly after I have a days rest.

O.K., I figured out the wiring and control for the seat heaters(2004 Volvo S40 seats).
This is likely relevant for a lot of swaps where the new seats have heaters that are CanBus/PCI controlled. If your new seats have a 10K thermistor for monitoring temp, then this is your solution for making the seat heaters work in your YJ. I found this circuit on-line for a thermostat control, it is perfect for this application.... Craig's Thermostat Circuits
Total cost for parts was around 30 bucks for both seats combined. I was able to build the thermostat circuit on a perf board and adapt it to the original seat CanBus controller which was essentially used as an interface.
The heater elements (One on the lower seat and one on the back rest) were wired in parallel, which makes them the same as having the seat heat set to high. I was able to set the temp to 105 deg. F and control within two degrees of this setpoint. Here are some pics, each application will be different depending upon the OEM, but this will give you an idea.

2000 Sunfire seats. They are very comfortable. Only problem I had was trying to remove the seat belt holder on the head rest. I was able to break it off though. Can post pics later if they are needed.

Ok heres what I just finished on my refit. I read all of these and since the jeep I bought had rusted and rotted seats,I know I'm gonna change the seats.
I have a 86 bronco II eddie bauher edition with great interior but bad drive train. HMMMMMM
the bolt pattern was only 1/8th of an inch difference so I slotted the back holes and vualaaa. [url]http://i1028.photobucket.com/albums/y348/roady2u/refitofseats004.jpg

I am going to cut the brackets down to give more leg clearance and they match almost perfect with the spice dash. They are extremely comfy and they have electric lumbar I will hooking up later also.
What are your opinions.
