power seats

Iva acquired a new job not to long ago and I have a chunk of change saved up and looking to do some improvements to my car.

The bucket seats in my car set annoyingly low and don't adjust for my driving likes. Ive seen several redone old cars with power seats in them.
Do i just need to find a set of power seats and then have them installed in my car? or is it alot more complicated then that.

Basically it is just as easy as that. The two areas that are potentially difficult are mounting the seats and wiring them. However, if you get seats that have the controls built into the seats then wiring will be easier. Also, by looking at power seats from the same manufacturer, you may avoid mounting troubles.

Those are basic tips. I'm sure others will chime in with other information.

Good luck.

Depends.....

What material do you want? (cloth, vinyl, leather) Is there a company that already makes the shells for that particular seat or will it have to be custom?

Google up seat recovering and see what pops up. You could also look in your local area for shops that specialize in that kind of work and talk to them.

As far as reholstering, I think it was a joke, but a local shop told Nissan_Altima they will do his seats in leather for $500. Funny cause the shop does alarms, electronics, and tints.

Was that for front and back seats? Sounds a bit high for just the front seats but if the shop doesn't specialize in it they may be willing to expand their horizons if the money is right.
