I'm restoring a 1982 Corvette and we are about to the
final reassembly stage. It is a full frame-on
restoration. Silver-blue exterior, standard edition.
It will not be quite show quality as I plan on it being
a daily driver. I'm tentatively planning on black or
charcoal floor and perhaps white leather seats; I'm
still looking at colors. I just finished putting on
the Lizard Skin heat shield and sound deadener. We're
about to put the wiring harnesses back in along with
all the interior brackets.
I plan on putting in a good alarm system but haven't
figured out what might be good to buy. The car will
be garaged at home and outside at work. I'm not into
remote starters, but that isn't a concern. I see that
they do have GPS and long range 2-way remotes now. I
tried to look at lojack's web site but that was less
than adequate in terms of a description of what they
offer. I figured you might be able to tell me what
alarm systems you like or dislike.
We've also decided that the seat frames should be
replaced. They are rusted and the entire electro-
mechanical stuff was scavenged before I got the car.
Where is a good place to find replacement seats for an
'82? Ecklers doesn't have any right now. What are
some other dealers for car seats? A friend recommended
racing seats since they are comfortable but the ones he
showed me didn't bend so I'd lose access to what little
room is in the back.
Thanks in advance,
