Over the last few days I’ve driven to multiple junkyards in multiple states to piece together a new set of seats for my new ‘98 Mustang GT. I’ve assembled a near mint condition set of leather sport seats from various New Edge 2000 Mustang GTs for all of $125 total (excluding gas and time).
These seats replace very worn out Megan Racing bucket fronts and original grey cloth-dyed-black rear seats.
One benefit of the new seats is an increase of adjustability over both OEM 1998 seats and the racing buckets. These new edge seats have 8-way adjustability which is more than even my 2019 truck has! To make the wiring fit I made an adapter using the body side seat pigtail from a donor junkyard 2000 mustang harness. The 1998 seats have a two pin connector (power and ground) and the 2000 has a four pin (main power, bolster/tilt power, seatbelt power, and ground). I soldered the main and tilt powers together, and the ground and seatbelt power together (unnecessary for this application) then added spade terminals which fit into the stock 1998 harness.
Today I am going to get new tires installed and am repairing a cracked center console lid. After that all I have to do is replace a couple broken rubber exhaust hangers and pull the bodyside dents.
