Those cleaned pretty damn nice considering what you started with! Good job.

and picked up these firebird seats from Cambridge auto wreckers for 100 bucks, they need a good cleaning and there is a little bit of wear on the drivers bolster but they are so much better then what i have. oh and you can see a header in the picture, i got a set of used edelbrock shorties for 100 bucks from a guy on kijiji.

Was there anything left of that car that the seats came out of? Was it an ls car?

it was a 3.4L, most of the interior is still there, i'm going to go there and try to get the back seat when i sell my toyota (need more spending money haha). the body is complete, it has a trans am bumper but its not perfect, they have a bunch of 4th gens there, (convertible lt1 t/a, one or 2 camaros, and i think 2 more firebirds) the snow is deep so exploring is not to easy now.

Hopefully they only used a bolt on kit, the ones I had to remove off the old 2000, the dirty buggers welded the brackets on, then glassed it all to add to the insult, now that was a chore and a half to convert back :shock:

I hope who ever did yours, was better with the wiring then the person who botched ours, they extended all the wires into the doors, cut, splice and electrical tape, and to make matters worse, used the same coloured wires on all, so that turned into a disaster too :rotflol

Everyone has there own tastes, and I know mine are not agreed apon by everyone on here :P but good god people, at least do it right :arg:

Not so good pics, but you should be able to see the mess I had to grind off, car turned out good in the end at least, won a few awards 8)

i guess im lucky because they are just bolted on not welded on but it sounds like the wiring on yours is just as "custom" as mine is... this is what i had to deal with this weekend. my drivers window was not working, and my passenger one was very slow so i popped off the window switch and found this mess

Image

thats speaker wire taped into the factory harness...

Image

just twisted and taped...

Image

all going to these relays that were self tapped into the door...

after everything was removed, the factory wires soldered and shrink tubed back together the windows work like new. i think this car is going to be full of surprises.

What the heck is with all the relays in the door? What do they do? lol

It wouldve been a lot easier to mount those under the dash then go through all that trouble to put them IN the damn door! wow! Takes some kinda special to be that guy hahaha.

Glad you got it worked out!

When it comes to "wiring jobs" I've seen some winners too. Every single old Dodge that I ever had a hood open on was a sloppy spaghetti mystery
