I have been looking for a GT rear seat with the right color material to match my GT front seats.
Ceasar in Houston had the right seats. Thankyou Ceasar.
The GT seat back is split where the 97 Metro was a solid back. (side to side).
The lower cushion fit right in after I cleaned it up.
The pivots for the GT upper cushions where used. A 4" piece of 3/4" barstock was used to connect the two
upper seat backs together.
The upper cushions where missing there back panels so I made new back panels that matched the
vinyl panels I made for the GT front bucket seats. like the fronts, I hid the large head push pins under the vinyl.
I also made a new spare tire cover but used 1/4" plywood instead of hard fiber board.

After about a week the push pins will smooth out so you can't see them.

You would not believe how dirty the seats where when I got them.
My carpet shampooer did a great job .
