Hey guys,
The seats available in the VT II R8 and VX, VX II R8, the Coulson seats with the big upper wings, where are they able to be purchased from....or is it just luck to find them at a wreckers or on eBay or something ??

Cheers :thumbsup:

dude, coulsons are the sh*t...i spent about 4 months trying to pick up a nice pair...but they are in high demand! going for well over $2k most of the time for second hand items. i gave up in the end, i just wasnt prepared to spend that much on seats, coulsons or not.
your best bet if your keen is ebay, there's always some on there, but like i said, anywhere from $1500-3000 is what you can expect to pay for a second hand interior with coulsons.
some places do sell them though, nvu.com sell new coulson foams for $990, so you would need to trim and mount them on a seat frame. and another place (whose name escapes me at the moment) sells a pair of complete seats in black leather (only colour they have) for $3500 new.
so second hand is your best bet, there's alot of pranged vt r8's around so just keep an eye out...as well as the r8's i think they were available in the vy coupe...or something like that, my brain is fried after a long day.

yeah, with the foams on NVU, do they come without the rails? would they just bolt on to the VS Rails if you took them out....and would it cost much to have them trimmed?? Are the coulson rears seats even worth getting??? i just love the fronts, look so sporty and damn sexy :yeah:

the dont come with anything, just foam...so you would need the mount them on a seat frame (the whole frame, not just the rails). i looked into it and it was going to cost more than i was willing to pay, you can get good second hand ones cheaper.

Why dont you just get a upholsterer to do them for you?

thats what i initially thought, but after buying the foam ($990+$110 freight) then buying some seats to use the frames and then getting it upholstered it works out to be too expensive to be worth while. unless you can get it done mates rates or something, or use cheap-ass cloth, etc.
