Later model seat install to 87 tq report

Just finished putting the 91 front sport seats into the tq - phenomenally
better seating. Hugs the hips better and love that lumbar support.
The power plugs on the passenger side are the same. The drivers side is not.
The seat wiring internal, including the memory is the same. I opted to swap
out the entire seat harness, using my old one - works dandy. Ground lines
for 2 of the motors are soldered on(!), and two wires on the rear tilt
switch can be unplugged fron the AMP connector. The other 2 have to be
desoldered or clipped (snip...). The seat belt annoyance indicator plug is
different too, and won't work if unplugged (darn!).
The fold down arm rest will only clear the earlier tq console if:
a. The CS option console armrest/cassette holder is removed (4 screws), and
b. The seat is raised a bit higher than I've been used to.

Next time I go to the junkyard I'll tear down a barcalounger and eyeball the
base. I have the feeling the base is the same for both sport and
barcalounger models - the fiche lists replacement padding, which means
anyone _may_ be able to convert their seats to sport seats and rebuild them
at the same time...
