Contour SVT seats in a focus.... possible?
 
Well I know there was a discussion regarding the possibility of installing Cougar seats in the focus but that never worked out. I'm pretty positive this wont work either......BUT I could get both front seats and the rear bench for about $60 IF I find out there's a remote chance it could work.

Is there a possibility that you can swap the mounting rails from the bottom of the focus seats to the contour seats so they have the right mounting positions? I'm also thinking that the seats MAY be a bit too wide but I'm not sure.

the rear bench, I'm not sure how it fits but it looks pretty similar to the focus. dunno if it's 60/40 rear split though.

Should I do it anyway? I mean they ARE leather seats and I've heard they are VERY comfortable....... [thumb]

Scratch that part about 60/40...... I forgot I had this picture of the car I want to pull them from. HMM those seat release cables/handles SURE look familiar, don't they? [thumb]

GO FOR IT, I'd kill for that price LOL. Just be witty enough to fab the railing if it doesn't fit the first time around. Nothing is impossible, hence if some are able to fit racing seats then this should be possible.

I like your attitude.... What I'm gonna do is go over there Wednesday, but before I go, pull my passenger side seat and the rear bench so I can do the initial first fits. :)

take notice of this, a small trick I learned many moons ago, lets say the rear bench is like an inch or 2 too large, don't give up, with a bit of handy work you fold back the seat cover, take away what is too much, refold seat cover but make sure both sides are equal and voilà, done deal. This you can do with front seats as well and ofcourse for the back rest in the rear. for the rails upfront that should not be so hard, the back fixation might be a bit of a pita but I'm quite sure you can handle this, just take time and measure twice

Ok cool... And I'm actually a bit worried about the fronts though... They have this odd semi circle of a thingy on the outsides of the bottom of them...

My neighbor three doors down from my has a regular automatic ZX3 and claims his seats are out of an SVT Contour...granted I have no way to verify this.
