    The dip job actually looks good I think. I definitely like it better than the black. Did the springs settle out like you wanted in the rear?

    After many years of searching I found a great set of seats out of a 04 comp g.

    Wired up the passenger side my way because I didn't want to run a power wire to my fuse box so I improvised.

    I sit higher in the car but the seats hug much better in cornering I love that.

    Pulled the carpet and gave it a good cleaning. 22 years of crap on it resulted in black water in the shampooer. On the 4th pass the water was gray so I called it good.

    I have some photos to share

    Looks nice! It's amazing how much stuff gets spilled down the side of the center.console. They should have installed a little drip tray on the side, with a drain that dumps it under the car. Lol

    Awesome. Nice cleaning job man. I hope to do the same in the blue car soon.

    Replacing the carpet like I did in the maroon car was a mistake. Never again. It's a much better idea to take out the original carpet and wash it.

    Is the passenger seat heated?

    Thanks. Yes the passenger seat is heated. My wife is happier now but it gets hot quick and there is only high setting because I'm lazy.

    I looked at buying carpet but the factory carpet is so much nicer and the padding is really thick

    I did a little more. I grabbed some jy heated seat switches. Low and behold the main bulb were burned in both switches

    I had some LED's laying around so I took out the burned bulbs and soldered LED's to the board in the switchs.

    By the photos I'm guessing you can tell what one was my original switch and what one has the LED

    I just have to finish the dual switch plate I cut and glued. A little filler and paint outa finish it up and I can put this long awaited project to bed
