^^ for the most part. I haven't really been able to work on em that much yet, but I was able to remove the brackets from the back. Right now I'm wondering how I'm gonna get the latches to do exactly that, as the ones from the focus sit too low. I also need the brackets from the Contour so I do hope that it's still there. it's been forever though :P. but it IS a huge junkyard. I guess I'll probably go check it out either wednesday or friday.

edit: here's the pic I forgot to add.... here you will see (or at least have to understand) that the bottom plate from the old bench is in place, the brackets are removed, and I still need to figure out how to get the seat belts through the bench. I may end up having to get contour belts as well.



sits more flush now.

^^ it used to when I had the brackets and no bottom plate on. now it doesn't go anywhere. the real problem now (and I ought to zip tie them shut now) is when I stop too hard sometimes, the seat backs fly forward. lol.

Hey, what's the status on these seats? I'm desperate for something drastically more comfortable to sit in while I pilot my crumbBox little focus.

lol well the back is still the same, no zip ties. ill permanently have them in this summer though.

front seats I think all you need to do is put em in place, wire up the power seat and belt indicator, weld some plates to the floor, and drill holes into them and attach :)
