Default Need tips from any who have done leather swap

I know a few on here have swapped out interiors on their cars for the leather. Any tips would be apreceated. I do have a couple questions though.

How hard is it to wire up the power seats?

How hard is it to find a leather bench front seat? I know they are rare in Bonnes but since I already have the bench in mine and prefer it to the bucket seats, and since I have a column shifter the center console really wouldn't be practicle, I would like to stick with the bench just in leather. as I said, they seem to be rare in the Bonnes (or may it'* just me) is there any way a leather bench from a LeSabre would fit?(I ask because I've seen more of these then in Bonnes)

the swap is Easy......

getting power to the seats is easy

Finding a leather bench out of a bonneville in your color.... impossible

yes any H and C body interior will work for you

Excuse my ignorance, but C body would be a Park Ave?

depending on how much it is to pic up the seats I figure I can make it up in resale value. besides, I'm not commited to the swap idea, just thinking
