C7 seats do not fit. They looked so good, I couldn't tear them up. So...

....How about 2015 Cadillac ATS seats?




These seats have more of the GM standard size base (ie like the Fiero), So I'm gonna try to make it work.
And it kind of fits....


After countless hours, I managed to completely disassemble the seats. The hard part was removing all of the extra brackets from the rails. The seats are much easier to handle when naked.




Several challenges still lie ahead. Mounting the seat frame to the rails. It will need to be removable. Second item is the power adjust. The rails are about 3" closer together than on the ATS, so the adjuster motor and frame needs to magically shrink. Then there is the wiring. These seats have full power and features. I've had to eliminate the power height adjust, but I think I can salvage the rest.

No idea when I'll get more done, but I wanted to show some progress.

Most of my challenges were met.

I mounted the seats to the power rails and made the rails removable.

The power assist for the forward/reverse was modified. I still need a shorter square drive, but they look to be available.

As for wiring, I managed to remember where most everything went, but I have not attempted to connect it into the car. That will wait until I get back into interior mode.

Still some challenges. I think it's still sitting too high for my 6 foot upper body. My head hits the roof. And there's still mounting the switches and all of the wiring. And lastly duplicating it on the passenger side. As for now, I need to take advantage of the weather and work on other things, so this is put on the backburner.

It's been a while updating this thread. These pics belong here, instead of my "body" thread.

I was correct in my last post that the seat was too high. I ended up taking about 1.5" out of the driver's side. Passenger side was ok.

I also have the fore-aft motors working, the tilt working, and the thigh tilt working on both seats.





Currently, I'm installing Noico 80mil butyl sound deadening. I'm about 2/3 done, but I will run out of mat before completing. So I have to order more. I'm also thinking of using 50 mil butyl or 210 mil foam for the roof. Thoughts?

Lastly, I'm also seriously considering a different dash swap.

Couple choices:



or



And...I ordered some carpet and vinyl samples for color matching.

thanx for looking...

Bob

Thank you, Wayne. I am looking for something "more simple" than the GA dash.

Here is a little better view of number 2.

An additional 18 sq ft of Noico 80 mil sound deadener arrived today, to go along with the 36 sq ft already in the car. Also purchased 25 sq ft of 50 mil that I will use on the roof.

Still awaiting color samples. Hmm??

Did a few other things, but that's for another thread.

Happy Easter

Bob

PS, I looked at the dashes above... Too small.. Not going to work.

Sadly, I think it's actually longer.

80mil Noico sound deadener.



36sqft wasn't enough to do one layer, so I bought an 18sqft second box.
That allowed me to finish and put a second layer on the firewall.

All that's left is the roof. The roof will get 50mil Kilmat.

I'm going to wait on that until the roof panels are fully mounted.
