Hey everyone, thanks for the :thumbs from everyone. Mark busted his ass to put these in for me. They most certainly were NOT a direct fit as Corbeau advertised.

Anyway, with everything I walked out the door paying $1186.98.

However, the fabrication for the shoulder retractor harness mount (2: 4" long pieces of Sqaure metal about a 1/4" thick welded to the back of the gas tank bar, the cutting of the siderails where the OEM seatbelts go, the dremmelling of the hole where the new harnesses mount to, the longer bolts needed for the mounting of the retractor, etc,,, and the frustration and hours Mark spent figuring out all this crap, along with the removal of the "L" bracket on the mounting rails.... If he were charging me, would have been wayyy too expensive. :angry Lucky for me Mark likes BEER! He' is cheap labor or should I say "will work for BEERS!" :drinkers LOL.

Later all.

P.S. The old seats are going to Dwayne for his Vette.

They look great Tanya... :thumbs

About the old seats, are they in your way for another week or so???

If they are I can come get them this weekend, but I would rather save the trip (GAS) and kill 2 birds with one stone next week....

Just let me know... :howdy

so did you fire of a letter to corbeau for their misrepresentation on the "direct fit"

perhaps they need to know that for future customers, and maybe you can get a hookup or at least kudos :lol

i cannot wait to get my C5 so i can play and upgrade with the big boys (and girls) :drinkers

I hooked the customer service guy up on the phone with a little "Direct fit my a$$" and "the seats don't fit without cutting parts off the frame rails, you guys are nuts" then he said "Sir, we have installed thousands of these with no complaints" then he said something after that but it was hard to hear him with the phone hung up. fighting0072.gif

I LOVE the way they fit. Very comfortable!

Thanks for the inspiration WaymireC! ;) :thumbs

P.s. No letter to Corbeau. They wouldn't care anyway from the way the guy talked to me and Mark.

well then hopefully they read this - they may look nice but with the "false advertising" and customer service like that - i wouldn't put those in my car even if they were given to me for FREE

hey Corbeau - hear that????

F.U.! :howdy

Thought we had him converted for a while, but he slipped back to the dark side. Two steps forward one and half steps back kind of thing. :D
