Chicago - Red/black Braum BRR1 racing seats FS

For sale, local pickup or meet in area
$800

This setup is valued at ~1200 or more if you wanted to do it yourself...
799 - seats
300 - brackets
up to 500 - passenger occupancy sensor, both side wiring harnesses, seat belts (a pair of donor OEM seats must be sacrificed to make aftermarket seats work!)
60 - hardware that didn't come with the seats

The braums are actually very comfortable and supportive despite being so stiff, and weighing in at only ~25-30 lbs each with the brackets. Granted I only have 5000 miles sitting in them they are still in perfect condition with no wear on the leather, wrinkling, cracking, tears etc. It is my position they can and will last for a long time.

I am a 34-36" waist and they fit snug. They are pretty accommodating for all body types.

Pm me if interested. Thanks for looking!

Valued at ~1200 if you wanted to do it yourself...

Considering trading for excellent condition front leather seats.

The deal would be meet near Chicagoland/tri-state area and swap seats for 700+ your seats

sure. alacantara is hard to find but i think i got it from jpm coachworks, who i think is now out of business.

Disassemble lower dash...

Trim pieces to fit...

Spray down a light coat of headliner adhesive, wrap the panel carefully.

as you can see a few of the edges didn't turn out that great (few wrinkles, it doesn't like some bends that much) but i'm no professional and think overall it was worth the effort.

thanks man. I'm not too motivated to trade these, but could use the money, and while i love the look, i kind of regret going with black and red; the look is a little 'loud' haha. had i gone with a graphite suede finish or all black don't think i'd be questioning it

um i think 2 or 3 yards; enough to do a headliner really. I don't have much leftover after trimming everything to size. In the end i did:

Panels under steering column
Center gearshift surround
Glovebox & surround
Both dashboard 'end caps'
all 4 door panel inserts

How much extra would you want with really nice condition stock leather seats?
