Are these seats with electric seat adjustment and seat heaters? If so, it would be great to hook them up :D

decided to go ahead and take a chance on the changes I had made to the design of the drivers mount.. tape measure measurements and guesses on the changes and voila... almost sits flat.. it is about an inch higher on the passenger side once seat is on the mount.. tonight I should finish up welding the seat to the mount...

after some work being done over the last week or so I got to my doors and discovered my ds door was bent... didnt want to spend $100+ on a tool for pulling dents so I used some bolts, some heat and a vice grip haha.. minimal bondo used despite what it appears... it has to be sanded down yet
