    Never got mine in the elcamino. But here is a tip on the wiring on the seats .The power seats i had also had menorey set for power set,computer,never did figer it out... . So the best thing i did was went back to salvage yard and got another passanger side wiring for the passanger side to put under the drivers side seat, every thang plunged in as should and ever thing worked ,, heated , up at front or back or down,front to back, power lunbar, power back rest. JUst 3 wire hook up ,,little orange wire and red wire to hot ,black to grd. PS,,, i thank the rear seat could be made to fit from 2 door car ,,maybe

    Just a note on something I ran into...

    There is a nasty hump in a Camaro floor where the cavity for the rear most subframe bolt resides. Power seat may interfere with this as the motors and tracks are very low to the floor. I ran into this when swapping C6 'Vette seats into my Camaro.
