    Seats look great.

    Did you have to pull the seat covers off to get the Bowtie's stitched over the GTO embroidering??
    I'm a HUGE HUGE fan of those seats.....

    Those backseats are just for show....lol no room.

    Is your 2nd gen mini tubbed? I bought a pair of the GTO seats as well but haven't picked them up yet. I put a set of DSE minis tubs in my 80 Camaro and am concerned about the room at the sides of the seats.

    Thanks!

    No it's not. With the seat backs installed, the original center piece that divides the backrests in the GTO also fits between the backrests in the Camaro perfectly. I'd think you would have a little room to bring them in but with the driveshaft hump in the way, the backrests wouldn't line up properly. Can I use the word backrests one more time.:crazy:

    The combination of those awsome seats and that unusual color make your car really different. A breath of COOL air.

    I'm doing this same thing to my 70! I know this is an old thread but do you think the front buckets sit up too high? The originals just barely came above the tops of the doors.
