Gray Cloth Seats, '97 Bird For Sale

In about 3 weeks, I'll be replacing the front seats in my 'Bird. They are gray cloth, driver's side power, passenger side manual. In pretty good shape overall, I'm just springing for some more comfortable aftermarket ones.

If you want them make an offer.

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.
Then it's freaking hilarious.

Me too. I know there is a brand that fits perfect but I can't remember the name. One of the Texas guys tried setting up a group buy a long time ago.

I'm going with some Flo-Fit seats. They were original equipment in the Saleen Mustangs way back when. A buddy of mine runs an auto accessory store over on the west side of town, and has a bunch of aftermarket seats on display to try out. FloFits seem to be a little more comfortable than Corbeau's, plus he has seen a lot of quality problems with the Corbeaus. I sat in some Recaros that fit like a glove; they feel so nice you get a little tingly feeling inside. Then I realized that tingly feeling was from the price tag.

They should arrive in 2-3 weeks.

Tingly.

Yes Recaros are nice but I never liked the snug beyond 15 minutes. I like to shift my weight a little while driving, in those there is no movement.

I remember the Saleens. Can't wait to see them.

The only Corbeau's that my buddy would recommend were too confining also. Especially in the shoulders. Great for a race car, sucks for a street car.

Cost: Can't say. I'm getting the good buddy discount. Normal price, with shipping and new brackets, would be about $1000/pair. Corbeaus are in the same range. Recaros are easily twice that.
