    Vectra GSi Recaros into my Astra GSi

    Seats are all in now,they look flipping smart.
    The sides of the rears didn't need modifying to go in at all,they just bolted straight in.
    There needs to be a bracket made,where the two rear back rests meet.

    The fronts were done by totally grinding everything of a mk3 base,then bolting them into the car,then offering the Vectra seats in,tacking them,removing and welding them.so there is only the one mechanism.
    Need to wire the power up for the electric adjustment.

    Please bear in mind the rears aren't finished yet,they will sit level when the bracket is made.

    I love those seats, top modding one of my fav Mk3's you have Lee.

    Are you thinking about re-trimming the door and side panels in the same material?

    Top mod, looking great mate.

    Agree with MarkC though that the door panels etc need retrimming in the same material
