FINALLY!!!!!!  Just got through paying for a set of 4 new seats I just bought on e-bay.  They're grey and black leather, front seats are power and in like new condition from a 2004.  The front seats also have those wonderful articulating headrests.  Can't wait for them to get here.  Got the set for $294 + $155 S/H from Colorado to Texas.  Had to arrange for them to be delivered to a place with a loading dock, but luckily I've got a friend that runs an e-bay electronics business and has a pretty large warehouse with a loading dock and forklift just outside the city limits.

If you can't tell, I'm incredibly excited about these seats.  I've been trying to find a set I can afford ever since I discovered that my drivers side air bag was blown.

With the added bonus of getting the airbag light turned off and the hinge that is poking through the fabric out of my side.

Now make sure your buddy does not drive the forks right through the seats when lifting them into the wharehouse..   :banghead:

This thought has crossed my mind several times today.  I'm hoping things work out so I can actually be there when they are unloaded.  He's got a couple of kids working for him that are not the brightest bulbs on the string.  Of course, the way his dock is set up, he's got that ramped pit that the truck can back down into so their tail gate is even with the floor, so we may not have to use the forklift at all.  Palette jack would be a lot easier and safer.

Well, back to work building a speed controller for a bubble machine....

The headrests tilt forward and back instead of just going up and down.  I'm taller from waist up than a lot of people so the seats don't quite conform to me and the normal headrests don't do me much good because they're too far from my head/neck.  The new headrests will tilt forward so they can actually do what they're supposed to.

Well the new seats came in today at lunch and they are currently sitting in my living room.  Discovered one minor issue that was not mentioned in the e-bay ad...   The driver's side seat is missing the little plastic lever/button/whatever-you-call-it that fits over the 4 switch posts.  It's not a major problem because the switch is still there and functional, it's just harder to find the little posts and remember which combination to move them in.  If anybody happens to run across one somewhere if you could snag it and send it my way I would pay the cost of the gadget and shipping (if the total is not over about $20)

Other than that, the seats are in fantastic condition and both side airbags are intact so I'll finally be rid of that annoying light.

Good news! Glad the retrofit is done, can't wait to see the photos of seats 2.0.

I'll try to get some pics up this evening.  Was going to take some while we were doing the work, but the camera's batteries were dead.

All in all, I love the new seats.  They sit up just a hair higher than the old ones, either because they're not worn out or because of the power mechanism.  I was rather surprised that all of the wiring for the electric seats was already in place.  It was literally a plug and play job.  Was a tiny bit disappointed that I was wrong about the articulating headrests, but also discovered that the seats have the built-in heaters if I should ever decide I want to hook them up.  Doubt I'll ever need them here in Texas.

The 'Tek has a whole different feel to it now though.  And the airbag light is finally off.  (If you can't tell, that light really bugged the crap out of me.)
