These seats look awesome! Very interested... What all did it take to keep the heated seat function with the stock button, along with getting the airbag to work properly? Different harnesses? Was the seat a good fit?
Very nice car, congrats!
Thanks for all that great response!
ABout the seats: These seats are from Recaro (recaro.com) and called "Sportster CS Edition 2011" in leather and with sideairbags. Here in Germany one is about 2000€ (2800$). To install it you need to add another 1000 - 2000 $.
Because there are no parts fitting to the camaro you need to handbuild the seatmounting and rails. Then you need to adapt the original sensors for seat position to these new rails.
At least you must change the "seat occoupied sensor mat" from the original co-driver seat to the Recaros (difficult).
Because of missing sensors in the Recaros you can't use the original seat-heating-buttons anymore. There are now new one on the seat (Made by Recaro).
The airbag-connection is quite simple. Just connect the to cabels from the original seat to the Recaro cabels. That's it. But if you mis one sensor, nothing will work!
The Body Kit is from Sinister (US) with an individual painting. The Splitter as said above is from User Blacky.
Hope this will answer your question.
