Can i replace my electric seats with manual seats?
I found a nice set of seats from an 86 but they are manual. My 90 has electric seats. I can probably get the seats and front door cards for around a hundred clams but need to know if the seats from an 86 will fit in my 90.

One thing tho cause I just found this out. When you remove your power seats the SRS light will come on and stay on. Unless there is this same plug in the non power seats? I had to remove my front seats to clean the carpets of old coffee stains, lipstick (yeah my bro had hoes in the car)- Meguiars Carpet cleaner worked great. Took out the stains and the red lipstick with some elbow grease from my tan colored carpets. Was running wires for my new radio too.
There is one rule...there are no rules!

Are the manual seats lower than the electric seats by chance? I'm not even that tall and the electric seats sit way too high. The real problem is the steering wheel is set too far into the dash, but a lower seat would be nice too.

Jippi, where did you get the eggcrate grill for your 850? Did you adapt a 940 grill? I really want to do that for our 850.
