Recaro Orthopad Gray Velour - Philadelphia area

Recaro Orthopad Gray Velour - Philadelphia area-imageuploadedbyautoguide1444483474.197893.jpg

All functions work on these: heat, power tilt, air bladder pump and three button air release.

These do not have the side bolsters like the idealsitz / classic C, but that might be better for applications like: r/c107, g-wagon. I have blue orthopads in my SLC convertible and love them. There is no big bolster to "goose" you on the way in or out, or to get in the way of the 107 center console. I had a gray interior SLC that I had planned to install these it, but the car got hit, and I sold the car for chump change. Everything else from the planned project is gone now.

I don't know if I've listed these for sale here before, but I am listing now because I just picked up two office chairs to turn these into office chairs if they don't sell in the next few weeks. Hard push to clear out the garage.

It would be a dream to get the $1350 I spent on these seats back. So let's make my pipe dream asking price the starting number, knowing that there would be a significant discount for anyone willing to show up in my driveway and take these away.

I can include two 107 seat frames to use to make the adapters to fit a 107, saving a 107 owner from having to dig up the parts to make brackets. Recaro Orthopad Gray Velour - Philadelphia area-imageuploadedbyautoguide1444484150.963981.jpg

These are nice. My ass has graced them. Worth every penny of $1350.

... And the AMG front spoiler I had also planned for that 280slc project. That does remind me that there was one other AMG bit that I had been saving for the project, freshly refinished ATS et11 AMG Pentas one set in each, silver and black.

The LOs with tires and lugs, ready for you to bolt on, and the AMG front lip should arrive in two days. Hope you like 'em.

So, the seats would do the back and forth on whatever MB tracks they adapted to, but all other movement functions are controlled by the seats themselves?

Yes. If is like my seats they only have two wires to supply seat power. Ground and 12V.

Yes. That's how they work. Keep in mind that there is some minimal track tilt on the stock seat tracks on all models, except for passenger early models. The early model driver tilt is often unknown, and virtually non-existent. In either case, the forward and back slide will be just like stock, and whatever seat track tilt is currently there will also be the same. All the features of these seats are above the part you sit on.
- power seat back tilt. There's a rocker switch for this.
- manual flip forward latches to allow rear seat entry, just like stock SL seats.
- air filled lumbar chambers that are filled with a power pump that is powered by a push button switch. It fills all three air chambers to the max.
- there are three blue buttons to release air from the three different height horizontal air chambers to achieve the desired lumbar.
- there is a switch for the power heat.
- there is one knob on each side of the seat back to adjust the width of each back side / torso bolster.
- there is one knob to adjust the upper back/shoulder tilt, which I just call "slouch". The headrests moves forward and back along with this.
- the headrest goes up and down, and also tilt forward and back, just like stock seat headrests.
- there is a lower leg extension that extends the length of the bottom portion of the seat.

I believe that wraps up all the functions of these seats.
