[MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, what's going on, guys? Landon with latemodelrestoration.com, and today I'm excited to announce a brand new product from SVE. Introducing the next seat in the SVE 'S' Series lineup, the SVE S2 racing seat.
Much like the S1, the S2 offers exceptional performance at an affordable price. Featuring black cloth, black synthetic leather contact points, and black stitching, the S2 racing seat will make your Mustang's interior stand out from the rest.
Being a race-inspired seat, the S2 does have harness slots and strategically placed bolsters to keep you planted while at the track. This seat is designed to fit all '79 to '04 Mustangs and drivers with up to a 36-inch waist.
The seats are sold as a pair and will include double locking seat tracks to ensure a direct fit into your Mustang. These seat tracks will require some assembly but can be done in about 30 to 45 minutes. With that being said, let's go ahead and show you how to assemble the seat tracks.
To start off, the difference between your passenger and driver seat bracket is where the seat belt stud is located. With the seat bracket facing the front of the car, the seat belt stud should be located closest to the center console.
To mount the slider mechanism to the seat track, start by locating the front oval-shaped cutouts. Moving to the rear of the slider mechanism, the oval-shaped cutouts will bolt to the outermost circle cutout on the seat track.
Start by placing one of the washers in between the slider mechanism and the seat track. Next place one of the bolts through the cutout. Then place another washer at the bottom of the bolt and loosely tighten down one of the nuts.
Lift up on the slider mechanism and move it forward to access the rear cutout. Like the front, place a washer in between the slider mechanism and the seat track. Place the bolt through the cutouts, install another washer, and loosely tighten down the nut. Follow the same procedure for the other side.
To install the slider mechanism handle, align the gold-colored tabs with the cutouts on the handle and slide it into place. But first we're going to show you how to install the seat track and slider mechanism under the SVE S1 racing seat.
With the seat upside down, start by locating the four pre-drilled holes underneath the upholstery and poking a hole through the material. Next place one of the lock washers over the Allen head bolt. Starting at the rear of the seat, align the second cutout from the top of the slider mechanism with the pre-drilled hole in the seat. Place one of the spacers in between the seat and the slider mechanism and then slide the Allen bolt through the cutout and loosely tighten the bolt. Do the same for the other side.
To access the front cutouts, slide the seat track up toward the rear of the seat. Align the oval-shaped cutout on the slider mechanism with the pre-drilled hole in the seat. Place a spacer in between the slider mechanism and the seat. Slide the Allen head bolt through the cutouts and firmly tighten the bolt. Do the same for the other side.
Slide the seat track down toward the front of the seat to expose the rear Allen bolts. Firmly tighten these as well. With a half-inch deep socket, firmly tighten down the four seat track to slider mechanism nuts, and you're done.
The installation for the SVE S2 racing seat is a little bit easier than the S1. Like the S1, make sure the seatbelt stud is located closest to the center console. With the seat upside down, start by locating the four predrilled holes underneath the upholstery and poking a hole through the material. The spacers are already pre-installed on the S2, so all you got to do is align the cutouts with the holes and tighten down the Allen head bolts.
From here the installation is the exact same thing as the S1. To see more great products from SVE, be sure and subscribe to our YouTube channel and pick up your SVE S2 racing seats from latemodelrestoration.com.
