  • Bolt in seat swap?

    Hey there, are there any seats that are a direct bolt in that are nicer than the originals?

    They aren't exactly a bolt in swap but there are some really easy swaps to do. There a few seats like Protege, Escort, Aspire and maybe a couple others that you can swap in by Using the back of the new seat and then just swapping the cushion and cover from the lower section onto the Festiva seat rail.

    While you have the covers off it would be a good idea to wash them since there is probably 20+ years of booty juice in them. Zip ties can replace hog rings when you go to put it back together.
