    oooh, those are nice Greg. Nice job. I looked for those seats in Asheville but didn't find any. It's so nice to see how well they fit and with those heated seats you can go bikini in the winter!

    The seats look great! I looked for Volvo setas for a while before I gave up and recovered the stock seats.

    yeah i have not decided what i am gonna do as far as the switch goes and as for what i am going to do for the power supplies for the drivers seat. just gotta run the wires and find locations. Any one looking for a set there are quite a few sets here in Raleigh, NC, and for what i payed for them, i can't complain at all.

    Got the black ones myself. I had them bolted to the factory mounts without the stock sliders. they fit damn near perfectly. Now they are bolted to the cage with the passenger one on hinges so I can access the battery in the fuel tank well. I think i paid $30 each for them. They were cheaper because they were not power, but they were heated.

    Excuse this reply if it's a repeat, but I am in Raleigh looking for some Volvo seats, you mention that you know of others available, would you send me that information.
