How hard would it have been to not use the brackets?

Is there a reason you didn't hook up the electric function for slide etc?

Thanks.
Wouldn't have been hard, ultimately, aside from needing to manufacture something to mount it to the stock seat locations.

The electric functionality took up a lot of space underneath the seat, raised the height of it tremendously, I would have been sitting and looking at the top of the windshield frame (it doesn't help my cause that I am 6'4", so I need all the headroom I can get)

2005 Mustang V6 seats in mine, I think they were $30 or 40 each at a local yard. Bolted the sliders right to the body after removing the stock bracketry. Had them reupholstered in a nice vinyl

Looks great. How did you disable the airbags?

The airbags are controlled by the original vehicles' PCM. Without one of those, they won't deploy.

But if you're nervous about it, you can just clip the wire.

This is a good option, because you found manual sliding Mustang seats. I had to go with the Corbeau sliders for mine because I found Power seats.

Just an FYI, the fox body Mustang seats are manual sliders on both sides, too. The only electrical is the lumbar support - hooked up on drivers side, but not on passenger side (yet).

I like that upholstery job. What did you use on the plastic parts? Any idea on how that will hold up?

Ya we also had the headrests cut down about 2" to match the fold n tumble head rests. They don't sit as tall now which is nice.

Hand washed all the plastic parts and then used Duplicolor interior plastic paint from OReilly. Came out great and should hold up well
