Default heated seats?

how hard would it be to add dual heated seats? how easy does the leather come off the seat? how easy does the leather tear? has anyone done this yet? cuz cold leather is the worst thing in the morning.

Done it. Buy the kits from www.grandprixstore.com and get to work. Gordy and I both have. It'* not easy, but not too bad.

Any heated seat kit will work. As for performance, do a search on any post by either SSEi95 or myself. It'* all listed here.[/list]

Old page from an old member of ours. It'll give you an idea of what to do, but you really only need the instructions with the kit.

If you have the sunroof, tie power into that circuit. You're not likely to use the heated seats and sunroof at the same time.

Power seat circuit? I wouldn't. Not enough juice there. You only need one source for both seats, not seperate.

Fusebox, or the BACK of the fusebox, preferably on the fused rather than supply side would be preferable. That way you're double protected. The kit comes with a fuse of it'* own, too. Or SHOULD. I don't know about the ZZP kit. PFYC'* has a fuse.
