^^ Yeah I'm pretty excited.....honestly first priority is getting the engine in and working

however there's someone on CEG doing AWD to their Contour using X type parts so I'm watching that closely as well.... though the focus and X type are quite similar

true true...... AND.... well today was pretty crazy lol. Only ended up with the rear seats but I'll get the passenger and maybe driver's side next wednesday. Get this though.... the whole rear bench only cost me $22 I think. NOT bad at all, I also met up with another member and we had fun bashing the hell out of the trunk before realizing the contour has a cable trunk release by the driver's seat. OOPS.

but yeah it was very simple to pull out, and I just kinda threw the actual folding seatbacks on top of my current ones cause I didn't have time to take them out. The bottom of the bench will need modifying, AKA transplanting the bottom half of my old bench onto the contour one. seat backs should go in like the focus. OH and the best part......I now have a fold down armrest in the back

so yeah just for now I have a picture of the rear seats, not installed, just sitting kind of in place, in the back of my car. safe to say I'm happy about it though

Mike why do you have to use the Fofo bottom back seat, doesn't the contour one fit at all or can't you modify it ??

LOL Daniel you're right though. At least with the awd.... And yeah see here's the thing, I am modifying it to work, but if you've ever looked you'll notice that our rear seats are bolted on the front with a hinge and the rear snaps snug into place. Well this one I'm note sure but I think someone may have already pulled the Bottom of it off, as it's just bare foam. Anyway the bench latches on the opposite way the focus does, but they have the same shape so it shouldnt be all that hard to do.

Hi Mike, sorry for the late reply, those seats look gorgeous, Me wanna LOL.
Congrats on your restoration parts, they really look good.
Have you considered for the lower parts just to reuse the bottomparts of your existing Fofo seat. IMO this should work, after you've adjusted the seats though you sould be able to use the original bottom with the hinges. Just my thoughts.
Let us know how it works out.
