    sounds good, I'll let you know when i get to that point. They are really nice restored original seats. Depending on the quotes I get from the local shops (after I find one to do it), it may be a few months.

    If you have a good rear seat, that needs to be covered I might work something out as a swap + cash on mine too. I hate to pull the new upholstery off it to be recovered again.

    Thanks, I hope the deal goes through, leery of zero feedback on ebay lol.

    If it does I'll keep looking,

    I've been researching this for a few days and it was a toss up between these seats and 4th gen seats.

    But in the end these look like the best fit as they were the closest to the original seats in terms of height and fit. Plus with some tweaking of the tracks I can use the ones on the 300zx :)

    Which leaves me with my 71-74 tracks I could flip to recoup some money. Trying to make this swap as painless and expensive as possible lol

    I had seen that same type of message on an EBay item after it had shipped. I did receive the item.

    Yeah I paid last friday, he replied pretty quick and sent me a tracking number Saturday.

    Just weird to see that, the seller basically disappeared. He opened the account recently anyways

    I'm guessing it's an EBay thing since it would have been the last or only item like that that the seller was selling.

    I had them do that to me once. I "violated" their terms of service with an auction. Sold a vintage leather jacket from the '60s, it was broken in perfectly and worn in all the right spots...BUT it was a former uniform jacket. I didn't list that it was "de-comissioned" even though there were no markings on it and they hadn't used the style for 40+ years. They put up a notice like that after the sale and killed the page (and after the guy paid me), we finished the transaction and I never worried about it. He got his stuff and I got paid.
