W body buckets and rear seat are really close. These are out of a 94 cutlass. Good option if you want power seats and have a split bench but can't find G body bucket tracks.

Rear seat folds down.

Rear seat upper cushion needs some brackets up top to latch into the G body hooks

84-88 fiero or Fbird steering wheels are the same as GP wheels, just have to swap the bracket/standoff.

For T5/T56 people

You can buy repop shifter boot leather pre-stitched online from a 4th gen F body. Cut the center out of the shifter plate and glue leather to the G body plate.

Thank you for sharing this info. The seats look really good, and I like how the rear seat folds. What size of metal channel did you use on the rear legs of the front seats?

Do you happen to know if the later W-body seats (97-03 2 door grand prixs, monte carlos, etc) mount the same as these cutlass seats?

Not sure. I have seen people run the later W seats but I don't know about brackets.

Thought I'd add my Vue Gentex mirror was only showing East or SE. I looked and there is a calibration procedure you need to do for it to read correctly.

You need to set the magnetic geographic zone & enter calibration mode and drive in a small circle at 5 mph until it exits cal mode.

It's easy but didn't see calibration mode mentioned anywhere.
