Re: G8 seats

Thanks, Wigid, I can understand. I recently did a re-upholstery job on our SVO, and am really NOT interested in replacing the fabric. That, and the seats in our car aren't in that bad a shape. I was just wondering if the seat rack replacement was a plug-and-play job, as I'd be interested in that. I...

Re: G8 seats

OUTSTANDING! It CAN be done! tell me where you're located--as much as I'd probably be OK to do it myself, I'd really hope to have the expertise you've shown to do the swap on mine. I've had a set of G8 seats for a couple of years, just waiting for this revelation! I am in Nashville Tennessee. It is...

the section behind the center console and the rear seat is the problem then. I was going to buy another G8 carpet and cut the rear section out and overlay it but this does not look too bad

I have a company Eight Emergency Vehicle Products http://www.8evp.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; that sells thin flush mount warning lights that have a cruise mode. so you have a wire that will make the lights flash and another with a steady burn feature that can act as a day li...

Did you fit the oval holes at the rear of the carpet over the front rear seat sockets in the body?
all the seat mounts and everything lined up perfectly except for the rear seat

Re: G8 seats

Other than adding a heated seat bottom by using the G8 seat, could one simply remove the seat rack and bolt it to the PPV seat? Power seat rack would be awesome, but I rarely need heat in Texas! I did it because my Caprice seats were in bad condition and I wanted the extra support and the leather. ...

Re: G8 rear seat

make sure when you buy your G8 seat that you get these two parts as well. if you don't the center section has nowhere to latch too
