Default Rear Heated Seats - NO 56K (98 Photos)

Rear Heated Seats Project

This is very long so grab a coffee...

I haven’t been around much for a while now but I did recently finish this project and thought I’d share. For the better part of the past year, I’ve been working on my rear heated seats. I’ve always been firm in my belief that I won’t do something unless I really feel it looks and works like a “factory installed” option.

And yeah... don’t even ask how much all this cost!

Write Up and Photos'* can now be viewed Here~GXP Venom

That really is amazing!! The first time my sister rode in the back of my car this winter she said that they should make the back seats heated too. I see you had the same idea!!

It looks perfect in the car and looks like it was factory installed (like you wanted.)

Thanks for the compliments everyone. There is actually a slightly different version of this write-up located here:

https://www.gmforum.com/t279010/

I just made it a little less "wordy" and there are a few picture changes. For the most part, it'* the same as this post.
