    If you need me to I will get a picture and put some arrows on it to illustrate. Next time I can pull one of the Corbeaus out of my Bird I'll do the same to see what the difference is. I'm betting its at least 2"-4".
    I almost have one of the bottom assemblies done. I take it you just want me to set it on the floor (with no seat tracks installed) and take those measurements? Let me know and I can probably have those sometime next week.

    I reached out to SMS Auto Fabrics: https://www.smsautofabrics.com/

    I asked them to provide me samples of all of the OE charcoal material that they had for an '85 Cougar and this is what they sent me. I ended up purchasing some of the charcoal waffle pattern material to recover the side fabric inserts in the back seat.
    Yes, that is what I was looking for. I have the lighter Oxford Grey. I'll contact them.
    Thanks!

    Very impressive, the work you guys have done and the info provided. I have some 84 Mustang sport seats..... Interesting, if I could make them into nice sport seats and match my stock 88 grey rear seat fabric......
