Hi guys,

I can possibly get hold of a nice set of VE Seats.
I've read on here that I'd probably need to change the rails over, which shouldn't be too much of a big deal I wouldn't think.
My car obviously wouldn't have the airbag connectors, which is no big deal either, they just wont get connected on the seat, but with the wiring, will this have to be significantly changed to get the electricals working, with minor adjustments will it be relatively easy to convert these to fit the VT???

Any advice/information greatly appreciated!

Also, anyone know about the rear seats. Would there be issues making these fit ?

Too many to list......
The wiring for the electrics is just positive and earth so that's easy enough. As for actually mounting them into the car that's where you may need to do some modifications

Was only asking about the VE seats because I found some that were practically brand new for about $800, wasn't exactly hunting for em.
I'm thinking about paying a visit to a motor trimmer or two on monday on my day off and having a chat and seeing what can/can't be done and rough pricing.
I don't mind my seats, though I'd like them to be re cushioned or whatever it's called, the seat frame to be fixed so it's solid again and a retrimmed.

I to can't believe how cheap a good pair of the leather VE SS seats are but they do look painfull.

VE seats unless HSV, are very uncomfortable. Seat foam, and frames are a problem with a lot of older seats.
I would be looking for a set of Coulsons, expensive yes, but way more comfort than VE stuff.
