ill prolly be doing a write up as well for installing recaros on 05 + as well

did you switch out the cushions for new ones? you should have while it was apart, so you'd have like new original seats

good point but where does one get new cushions for the recaros? iirc, they arent the same as standard focus or svt seats...so would you have to go custom made?

Glad to see these seats getting brought back to their former glory. keep updating [:)]

So are the frames totalley different than st ones? Or are the Recaro's one off's & regular svt's & st's are similar? Great thread going.

you could always try an interior shop and get a quote for the cushions
