Body/Appearance/Interior / need a seating solution
My base LS  seats are sucking.  They are in fine shape, but are cutting into my left leg/buttock on the edge.  It sucks to drive and uncomfortable.  I am 6'  230lbs. 

Has anyone tried these seats from LMR?

I have a set of 84 Mustang sport seats I could have redone.  Im not sure they would be much better.  I cant find a decent set of Tbird cougar sport seats around here at all.  Guy on FEP had a nice set, but they were in Ohio. 

What about sn95 seats fitting?

Any advise is appreciated.

Body/Appearance/Interior / Re: Chrome on Side moldings
Aaaannnndddd 8 years later I found something that works, at least for the 87-88 cars. It's made by 3m, Silver Polyester Metalized Film Tape 1/2" Width.

Grainger sells it. A 5 yard roll (15 feet) is enough to do the rubber side moldings between the wheels. It has an acrylic backing (like body side molding tape) and, if applied to a clean, grease free surface, sticks like crazy. It only needs to be trimmed at the ends as it is the perfect width to cover the chrome strip in the moldings .

Found this.  How is it holding up..?

Electrical Tech / Cruise control quit working
88 5.0 AOD

I will check the fuses when I get home. Other than that I have no idea what else to check.  I've never messed with the cruise stuff before.  Any advise is appreciated.

Body/Appearance/Interior / Charcoal grey 10 hole wheels
Anyone got pics of darker grey 10 holes on our black cars.  My car is black and trying to decide how they would look. 

Opinions?

I may be able to pic up a set of 4 with tires.

Suspension/Steering / larger wheels and lower profile tires
Its getting pretty hard to get much choice in 15 inch tires anymore, and I can get decent 235/50/17 tires for the same price. The overall size is very close to the same as my 235/60/15 I'm running now.

This leads to my question.  You guys running 17" wheels, did you notice much ride quality degradation when going to the lower profile tires, such as the ones I mentioned? 

Mine already doesn't ride that soft now, cut front stock springs and Tokico Blue shocks all around.

thanks guys.
