    Ok same here aggcamaro74. When I look at this site on my iPhone I get some crazy popup saying I won a gift from Amazon and I get it all the time. It must be my work firewall.


    J. Chris Davis those seats do look nice in your car. So they are a direct fit from Summit? I have a 1971 so they will need a different track but I like the seat.

    I didn't have any issues installing everything. I'm 6'1" so I thought the seats sat high at first, but the driver seat has broken in a little bit and I'm used to how they both look now. I may have cut the bottom mount tab off of the sliders since I had mounted them down as low as they would go. I think some of the tab was hitting the floor and had to be trimmed. I don't remember exactly off hand. It as no big deal to trim them down. If you require a different track for your year. Summit might be able to help with that in their tech department. I'm not sure if there is a different kit for the different year changes in the floor pans.

    Thanks Chris for the reply and I am 6'2" so that is good to know they are comfortable for a tall person. Really don't see any reason to not get these seats. I like the price and they are already leather. If I purchase the 300zx seats I am going to have them reupholstered and that will run into a grand before it's all said and done. Am I missing anything else. Seems like a no brainer to me but again your saying the seats are very comfortable and fit like a glove.
    We are talking about the ProCar 80-1000-51LS seats correct?

    The ones I have are the faux leather or vinyl. I think you can get them in leather though.

    I installed 5th gen Camaro seats and a 5th gen console. I had to make brackets for them to fit. They both are 6 way power.

    Does anybody know if you can take the powered 300z drivers seat and convert it to manual. I can get a set of 300z seats locally with the drivers side electric and passenger manual. Thinking I can buy a manual track cheaper than having a manual seat shipped in.

    When looking at the 300zx seats I had the same issue you are describing. I couldn't figure out a solution. I tried putting pass side track on or moding the power tracks with no luck. Every set of seats I looked at were drivers power. If you do it find a non power seat. I finally scraped the idea and seats I had and went with the 5th gen seats. They were more work but I'm happier with them.

    Do you think if I got a drivers side manual track I could switch it over from the electric seat? Or do I need to get manual driver seat to start with. I don’t have the seats in front of me to look at. Thanks Ricky
