cavaler seats

Check out my profile we are using cavalier seats we picked from salvage yard a year ago.We live in Daytona near the beach plenty of hot sun so we use a bimini top so far not much fading as far as getting wet the occasional afternoon shower we get caught in towel it off and dries in a couple of hours but I don"t know about a good soaking. But for 18 bucks each i will just get a couple of more they bolt right in but i used some washers to get the back a little higher

Grand-Am seats

Just got my 05 Grand-Am seats in and they bolted right up to stock hardware. My butt is very happy now and my back is liking it also. Very easy to do and were only 35 bucks at local U-pick yard. Weird thing was they were out of a car that wasn't wrecked and look like new . Hope it wasn't an employee car parked in the junk car line.

I harvested some charcoal/black leather heated seats from an Alfa Romeo 4-door sedan, I think it's a 2001 156. Not much help to most Americans, but good for those of us overseas, or for the occasional European/Brit that has access to them. My Jeep is now extremely unique.

Not a perfect fit. Use the Alfa's sliders, and you'll have to drill 4 holes in the YJ seat frame (I did 5). One other thing, be prepared to drill out/dremel/grind off some stuff from the Alfa's sliders. The seat will ultimately be about 2 inches higher, but OMG these seats are comfy. I'm doing the driver's seat right now.

Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated!

Took me a little over a year, part-time, to track down, but my seats are out of a Hyundai Tiburon 2006(ish).

Leather seats from an '01 Grand Prix GTS are not direct fit. Bolt pattern from front to rear are the same, but console to door measurment is about 2" off. Minor fabrication work and some....adjustments....of a bracket on the seat with a hammer and all is good to go.

2000 Cavalier seats were not a direct bolt on my 89. I got them in but had to fabricate 3 of the 4 holes
