it's more of a satin, but yeah it peels off no problem you can also spray clear or gloss black on top of it and it will still peal up fine

Re: Mostizzles dime

We'll see.

Put a few miles on the truck today and I hated the new seats for about 5 minutes until I put my seat one notch closer to the wheel. I love them now. lol

Re: Mostizzles dime

The headrests and plastic tubes will come out if you remove the C-clips that are down inside the top of the seats. I practiced on some trash seats at the salvage yard before I gently removed them on the seats I took home. All you need is a long and skinny flat head screwdriver. I can't explain exactly where to insert the screwdriver at the moment because this all was about 2 years ago. You'll probably visit a salvage yard before I get to my seats to look at them. (Yes, I haven't installed them yet and they're in my storage shed at my mother-in-law's house). What I'D like to know is how to remove the little plastic lever piece on the back that you pull up to tilt the seat forward. This needs to come off to remove the fabric on the seat back.

Re: Mostizzles dime

I want to keep the headrests I just want to get rid of the plastic that's attached to the underside of the headrests. Unless that's what you're talking about?

Re: Mostizzles dime

IIRC, it can be removed once you remove the headrests from the seat. The more I think about it, I removed the plastic that had the loops from the seats that I wanted, then installed plastic from older or newer seats that didn't have the loops and were the same color. It was so long ago I can't remember, and I searched through about 10 Cavi's/Sunfires. I do remember that I got the driver and passenger seats from two different cars because of their conditions. If I was around my shed, I'd go take a look and stop writing confusing novels.

Re: Mostizzles dime

It all came out at the same time. Basically I made a vertical cut in front of each headrest post, then bent the plastic until the back side broke off. Each side came off in three pieces.

I went out there today and took a look at them. Figured out that push nuts hold the plastic up against the bottoms of the headrests so I busted those off with some needle nose and cut the plastic off from around the headrest posts with my mini sawzall.....





I tried getting the headrests off but was afraid that it couldn't be done without fcuking something up so I left them alone.


In other news....I figured I'd re clear my tails and then polish them. Well, I guess the two different brands of clear didn't jive with each other or something because they got cloudy as shit and now they look horrible soooooooo.......

Back to these shits.


Brent, you're obviously really good at painting tails so I was wondering what you would charge to candy these Euros for me, and/or what you would charge to acquire another set of stock lights to candy for me?

Re: Mostizzles dime

Those seats look so much better without the seatbelt loop things. I forgot about the push nuts, I broke mine off the exact same way Sucks about the tails, you should get those euros tinted black, back when I had stock tails I tinted mine with Pactra r/c car spray tint and dupli-color clear, turned out nice for rattle can.

Sadly, no. But it's getting closer and closer every day. Magnaflow cat is scheduled for delivery tomorrow, Dynomax Race Bullet should be here early next week, and hopefully getting it to the exhaust shop sometime in early April. After exhaust all it needs to be street legal is insurance and registration. Also planning to send the PCM off to Wait4Me at some point to retune for different gearing and hopefully squeeze a few extra HP out of it...

Thanks man! I'm liking them more and more each day. Definitely a huge upgrade considering I've been through 2 other sets of tattered seats and now I finally have a mint set.

Re: Mostizzles dime

Back is a lot better, thanks. Went with my buddy to pick up a rear end for the Mustang today and I supervised loading it while him and the seller piled it in the back of the truck just to be safe. lol

Lame update but whatever.

Picked this crap up...


Been looking for the little cover that goes here forever....


Yay!


Got a hinge cover for my passenger side seat and one for the drivers side that's in a little better shape...








Finally found the correct trim piece for this...




Cleaned up and painted Jeep shaft ready to rock...


For future reference I believe I got it from a 97 or a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It requires no modification to fit my truck. I'm really anxious to put my ZQ8 box in now that I have all the shit to do it.

Re: Mostizzles dime

Only the newer ones I noticed. I pretty much looked at every Jeep in the yard And the older Grand Cherokees have non collapsible shafts. I say look at 96 and up. Dead give away is that little rubber boot you see in the middle...



The fixed ones won't have that, those have a plastic sleeve about 4'' long on the lower half.

Re: Mostizzles dime

Going to keep this info in mind next time I head to Pick-n-Pull. Although I'll probably wait a couple weeks to let things dry out since it's been raining for the last week or so here. Was just about to pull the trigger on the Flaming River joint but the thing that held me up was "what about the top one?" Is the Heep shaft any bigger around than the stock one? My stock one damn near touches the header right now...

Re: Mostizzles dime

It deleted the rag joint at the steering box and poopy tulip joint at the column with nice and solid tiny universal joints.

BTW Jerry will any of the Classic Cherokee shafts work?

Yeah it looks to be a lot smaller in diameter than the stocker.

I don't think so but maybe? Like I said, the rubber boot between the two halves is the dead give away. As long as it's the collapsible type even if it's too long you can cut it down to work. The factory shaft on mine(94) is 18''. I'm not sure if it's the same for every year or not.

Re: Mostizzles dime

Heater, I haven't put it in yet but I know there will be a difference.

Greg, I had a discussion with another member in Heaters thread and I guess some s10's don't have the top tulip joint but I forgot to look while I was at the yard to confirm or debunk that.
