Really not sure if I should post here or O/T, but it is Fiero related.

I just finished the interior of a full custom Mustang and the customer gave me the freedom to do whatever I wanted.

So being a Fiero person I just had to install Fiero seats. This pic was two days before he picked the car up.
The seats are from a '85, so the speakers in the headrest are functional also.





I'll be happy to answer any questions

Those look pretty good but they seem really low? Can you see over the dash when you're sitting in them? Maybe it's just the angle you took the side shot at though.

I like the covers those are nice.

Those look pretty good in there. Are those Mr. Mike's skins? I'm resto-modding a 53 Ford F100 and I've been trying real hard to use some Fiero parts on it from my parts car. The best I've done is a few connectors and the engine compartment blower fan for my heater box.

Very nice. Seems to be a very common swap. More Mustang pics...

Mattwa - he thought they looked great

Steel - They actually sit at about the same height as the stock Mustang seats

Carnut - No on Mr Mike's , I did those, here is a pic of the rear seat area


Fierosound - must be because the Fiero seats are more comfortable than the stock Mustang seats

He did all the body work himself, besides the suicide doors , he hand made the T-Tops

If you've ever sat in an older Mustang, you'd realize that Fiero seats are an upgrade.
Actually, there was one for sale locally about 10 years ago with Fiero seats...

They're better than what I had in my 95 Mustang GT. Those seats were frumpy. RussT-nice job on those seats!

I agree... Only my Fiero has the lumbar switches, which can be anoying on your leg...

What is that, a '67 Fastback?

I love the suicide doors.

I think the real advantage of the fiero seats over the original mustang's would be the ability to lean them back. The mustang had an adjustable bolt stop with no multi position ratchet lever. That and the head rest for whiplash protection... ok, and the speakers...more comfort too.

The side view mirrors over the quarter windows would make one hellof a blind spot... I'd be hitting pedestrians all day.
Do you have any full car pics with the door closed so I could pass better judgement on design?

Definitely a 67 or 68 mustang. Hard to tell which year for sure given the # or mods. Biggest difference would be side quarter panel and side fender marker lights. 67 didn't have them, 68 they were required by law.

I wouldn't have head rests myself in a 60s mustang i used to have a e30 bmw and it looked so much better without headrests more retro.
These seats do work ok.

I have seen Fiero seats in more than a few cars.
They are great alternatives to the more expensive aftermarket seats
that guys want to install in their hot rod projects. (i.e Recaro's)

There is even a guy where I live who has Fiero seats in his Plymouth RoadRunner.
I always mention that whenever I see him at a car show.

It's a '68, rear fenders from a '05, 460ci CJ and lots of HP. The mirrors house the switch to open the doors, here is the side pic,
The silver metallic is from a Dodge Challenger Wheel rim and the Dark Blue Metallic is a Mercedes Color

I'll take more pics when I get to his garage next week and post them on my website along with other pics of the completed car
Here are couple of pics of the trunk
