    This. I find the 90s elongated bumper sides and cladding ruined the simple elegance of the body lines and clutters the car (plus they seem to invite rust halfway up the body.)

    I dream of someone doing a 90s bumper, BUT, filling the holes on the sides in that are under the fat trim, rechroming, and running thin 80s trim. I think it would look amazing.

    I'd love an 80s bumper with no rub moldings or bumperettes or the peak cut off for the license plate.

    So I found the same seats at the junkyard. The guy on craigs wanted 175 for his seats and I was ready to make the deal but I decided to look on our local upull website and got lucky. These cost me $40. Same exact seats. Now I wont feel bad if I dont use them.

    Seville seats? Aren't they for a four door? How do the rear seat passengers get in and out? Or am I missing something here?

    Cheers..........R.

    Shoot! Didnt think of that. All the more reason to be glad I only paid $40.

    There's probably enough room to squeeze in the back with the backrest vertical, and the seat slid all the way up.

    Just the thought of not having to deal with the seatbelt issue makes me happy. Still dont know if I'm gonna use these(probably will) or do what Pimpin did and make the cadillac seat a bucket.

    Wonder if you could swap hinges/ frames with an eldorado seat of the same generation?

    Does anybody know what black is needed to paint the interior. They have satin black and landau black at red rooster.

    I don't know what landau black is but I always thought interiors were satin fwiw.

    Good cause I got satin.

    Got the seats mocked up, so far so good. Gotta figure something out for mounting them.
