I saw a thread once where someone put C5 seats in their C3. I think they were a little tall, but worked out ok.

I went the C5 seat route. Here's a thread I made a while ago, but as soon as I get my new seatbelts installed I'll be reworking the mounting method:

C5 Seat Install Version 1

give me until Wed. or Thurs. and I should have a new thread with version 2!

The seats can be found on ebay for between $750 and $1000. I watched and waited for a while and found a decent set for $350 after shipping.

Optimists think the glass is half full.
Pessimists think the glass is half empty.
Engineers realize it's twice as big as it needs to be.

Look up www.contemporarycorvettes.com. They are a wrecking yard in Pa and they have more than you could ever want in the way of parts. Great people to do business with also. I've bought some parts from them and they were in great shape and the price was right. The service was fantastic. Art
