Re: G8 seats

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...

Re: G8 seats

once you have elongated the hole then reinstall the switches http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/tt353/wigid2006/IMG_2666_zpsbsrvebeo.jpg Now I changed the knob from the Caprice with the one from the G8 as well (left is caprice with the ledges to stop the switch working and the right is the G8 one) h...

Re: G8 seats

you then remove the rest of the Pontiac loom and discard it. then get the loom you have previously removed from the Caprice seat and put that in the seat runner frame. take the two gray wires and put them on the two unused holes in the Caprice switch plug http://i627.photobucket.com/albums/tt353/wig...
