English maybe?

From what I gather from your horribly worded post, you know that both 2nd and 3rd generation LS seats can be adapted to work in a 1st generation chassis. So what exactly is your question?

English may not be his native tongue or he may be a victim of the texting craze. More than likely he is simply a product of "modern" education techniques.

Regardless of the above, The easiest solution is for LS400ridin to take his car to a good upholstery shop and have his seats rebuilt to factory specs. He isn't too far from Unique Auto and I am sure that Buju and Willie could whip something "cool" up for him.

Given the car is upwards of fifteen years old, are you really surprised the seats aren't pristine?

Like Jdavis says, you should take it to an auto shop and have them rebuild the seats-- don't mess with the chassis if you don't have to.

I was going to replace the seats in my 1994 LS and found what looked a good clean set in the same color on Ebay from a 98 model year, however when I saw them for real they were in a worse state than my originals with a tear and serious wear on the drivers side (US passenger side) so I left them.

If you are serious about it, as all the other members suggest get the originals recovered because you will be lucky to find a decent set from a donor car.

Apparently some have fitted LS430 seats into the LS400 but it does require some technical fabrication skills to adapt them.

I bet Unique Autosport would charge around $50K or more to redo the seats. LOL that show is awsome. I wish I had a 2010 LS460L to send them.
