    I found mine in the local Craigslist, out of a wrecked car. Amazing how many kids get that car and seem to pile them up.

    Spav350,

    Would happen to have pics of the entire rear seat from outside and inside the car? It would be nice to see some overall photos of the installation!

    Sorry for the crappy pics here. I'll get some better ones later. My camera was a little screwy, so I had to take them with my phone. I'll include some different angles.

    I was working on disassembling my GTO parts car last night, so just for grins I grabbed a tape measure and measured the distance from the drivers' seat outer rear mount to the headliner. On the GTO, it's about 42" (+/-). On my 79Z, the same measurement was about 39" (+/-). So, the GTO actually has about 3" more headroom than the second gens...

    Have you thought about cutting some of the bottom foam/frame off of the rear seatbacks and wrapping the leather around, and then dropping the rear seatbacks down an inch or two?

    Dangerous Drew,

    No I didn't even think of it. My only concern would be how well the backs would conform to the person's back that would be sitting in them after modifying the hight of them. Feel free to post here if you do it though.

    That wouldn't be hard at all. I may do that today. I'll post up if I decide to do it. Thanks Dangerous Drew!
