    Default My VXR seat project...

    Well todays the day that I was going to find out whether or not my gamble on the VXR foam pads was going to work or not.

    Arrived bright and early at CCS and began work on removing my front seat.



    Next Steve then began stripping my seat down to the bare frame so everything had to be removed.









    And then we were left with a seat looking like this.



    Then the moment of truth when we tried out the foam pads on my seat frame.









    The Vectra now has its original drivers seat in for now while Steve gets to work on trimming the seat just waiting on the heated seat pads to arrive as well so luckily my gamble has paid off lol

    Did you order the adjustable thigh support bit to go with them? And do you have any part numbers?

    I'm just using my existing early SRI seat frame as that has the pull out leg support on the seat base.

    I've still got to order up the bits for the passenger seat as just doing one seat at a time.

    I bought the foam pads from the dealers, they cost about £320, still need to buy the proper headrests but they cost £179+VAT each lol

    Yup thats for one seat, then add into that the heated seat pads which are another £100 ish per seat then the retrimming on top lol, everything else swaps over quite nicely, I'll sort out part numbers for you
