My ride (89 K2500 reg cab, long bed, 5.7 Ltr (k)) is almost finished
with a frame
up restoration... Luckily there was only one small "Watch out for that
tree!" dent from
a long ago 4 wheeling trip. Lord, the money I have spent...
Right after I bought it (new), I changed the bench seat out with a
up from a company called Emerson Seating. Sun fading, and a big ass have had
due with it... but it looks like Emerson is no longer in biz. Looking
around, I was looking
to replace that with true bucket seats:
The Corbeau A4 seat is just what I'm looking for (under a grand for both
seats), but not much choice on the color (I have the Garnet Red Int).
The SPARCO Siena is really nice, but pretty expensive... the above site
doesn't look like they sell the brackets for the Sparco either.
What can I do? Anyone done anything like this with you truck?
All ideas, links, info gratefully anticipated.
