Leather seats 96 into an 01

Soooo a few years ago I swapped all my tan leather in my 96 to black. I purchased nice front and backs fram a salvage yard.... So my question, I saved the old tan seats. The fronts are super torn so what I was thinking is pullin them apart and making new "covers" and swapping them into my 01SH?

Ideas or experience? My buddy does the leather thing. He makes some really neat things and has re done his motorcycle seats. We figure they been sitting a couple years may as well give it a shot, right?

Not like I am gonna use them out in the shed. Thanks guys

4th gen seats > 5th gen seats.. but i think it would look really off in a 5th gen.. those seats belong in space ships

Re: Leather seats 96 into an 01

haha. yeah I LOVE those seats!! I mean it gives me something to do... but you are right. The 5g sits way higher and I'm already only 5'2 I could be sitting on the floor ;)

Have you ever seen them in a 5G? I wanna see a pic now lol. I guess I could do it just to do it and sell them to someone if they come out ok. I WANT MY LEATHERS BACK!!!

Re: Leather seats 96 into an 01

my friend put one in his saturn so it shuoldnt be hard to fit it in a 5g.

ud just have to custom fab some rails using one of the sets. id check to see how far off the alignment is to bolt the 5g seat rail to 4g and make some adapter maybe.

gotta say the 4g had some better interior stuff like the seats the e brake with the leather handle and the dash lol

Yeah I def love the seats and dash better!!! The brake I like the position on 4g too.

Well I am putting my 4G for sell again. After my friend only paid half of it and he baby drive :( the mirror got hit and he doesn't understand how low it is. I'm sad.

Re: Leather seats 96 into an 01

many 5th genners install S2k bucket seats and they look great. Since 4th gen lude seats are also bucket I don't see why they would look bad! Go for it! It's not a direct plug and play, but it's a very possible thing to do. Keep us updated.
