No worries... And that's exactly what I meant by using the bottom.

Oh and update, still not installed but the folding sections DO mount up to stock brackets

So you're telling that you have Contour seats there at the junk yard in Hamilton ?? Are they leather ??
Man, here in Quebec it's getting rare to see a decent junk yard with interesting stuff.
Would you mind finding out what they charge for the Contour front and back seats in leather (if they have them) ??
Thnx in advance

Well at least the folding backs won't require modification.... Otherwise you're gonna have to do some custom work. Regular contour seats are pretty different from the svt ones, besides being leather. There also are tan seats if you can find any. (but yeah there's like three rows of just contours and many more around)

My car smells different now..... Deciding whether or not I like it. LOL.

OK update:

SO just for the record, seat backs are real PITAs if you don't have the brackets that the seats came with. I Don't, and though they have the same bolt pattern as the focus, you'll end up being off centered which is a huge problem. I'll have to get those next time I'm at the junk yard. they do sit in there alright, but that's about it. I MAY have to snag the seat belt things too. damn. I THOUGHT they'd fit cause they looked the same. I'll also have to remove this weird thing that may be part of the bottom of the old seat.... and hopefully I wont have to now, but I MAY have to even move the catches for the seat locks..... :P

oh well, I'll find time to work on them eventually, as school starts Tomorrow :P

Damn that's a bummer but only a minor setback. It's apreciated though to let us all know. It might come in handy for other people to know.
I'm hopefull that if you get everything, all will fall in place. If any pics let us see (I'm visual).
Keep us updated with all news about the seats and goodluck at school ;)

Yeah only a setback, it can still be done.... I just have to get the right brackets so I can center the seats. They should fit fine otherwise.

And thanks, I actually can't wait LOL.

And I'm not sure when I'll be able to work on these again since I just got a paid intern job at an autoshop after school :)

They look really great where they are now but one side isn't even bolted in. And it's just the rear seats for now but I'll probably get the front seats wednesday unless I'm working
