Trying to do this on the cheap (duh)

Photobucket

that's what I have, it is a total ruiner of my motivation to work on or drive this car.

There's the cheapo racing buckets out there, but what's a good seat that can be had for cheap ~100 bucks say for the Drive and passenger with good bolstering.

Oh yeah this is for a Taurus SHO, FWIW all taurus seats fit it from 86-00 AFAIK

My '92 SHO had the same problem, though admittedly not as bad. I ended up finding a nice set from an automatic '93 locally. They get parted all the time, as I'm sure you know... Kersploding transmissions do have their advantages at times, I guess.

Look into what seats the guy on here with the 5-spd Crown Vic has in his car. They look like they'd match the SHO interior fairly well. I found a link:

I love that car.

I should have stated that I don't care if they match the interior, just that they are comfortable and have good bolstering. I plan on spray painting the carpet black, and gluing some fabric to the rear seat (looks like the front only maybe worse) the cheapo racing buckets are probably going to require custom mounting and what not so I figured I'd pick from any other car as long as they fit in the space.

I would not announce that I was picking my seat... I'd excuse myself and go to the bathroom.

I'd pick these:

But they're a bit hard to find nowadays.

Scheel seats from a 1979 DKM Macho Trans Am.

those are bad ass, I like the ones in the crown vic but that's going to be out of my budget. the local pull a part list seats as 36 dollars. That's my shopping venue lol.

If you can't find what you want at the u-pull-it, you can probably scare up a set of decent seat covers for something in the same budget range.

mine are like a ton each so geting rid of them for something lighter would be good too. I don't need power lumbar and power bolsters, and I HATE the way seat covers feel they never fit right. And the nice seat covers are WAY too expensive.

So I'm trying to find what car has lightish seats, and good bolstering, maybe that should have been the thread title lol.

For what it's worth the 89-97 Thunderbird and Cougar share seats with your car. The seats from a 93-98 Lincoln Mk8 would probably bolt up for the same reason.
