|6" long 3/8" drive extension|
|2X '79-'93 Mustang, Thunderbird, Cougar, Fairmont Seats (FOX Body)|
|2X '74-'78 Mustang II seats|
To do the swap:
- I don't remember the socket sizes necessary to remove the FOX seats, but
get yourself a pair of seats from a FOX body car.
- Remove the seat rails from the FOX seats using the 10mm socket on the 4
Remove the stock Mustang II seats using a 1/2" deep socket to remove
the 4 retaining nuts under the car.
Remove the seat rails from the Mustang II seats using the 3/8" socket
for the 4 retaining bolts.
Clean and lubricate the Mustang II seat rails while they're easy to work
Attach the Mustang II seat rails to the FOX seats using the original 10mm
**It may be necessary to drill a starting hole for one or more bolts.
The soft plug will be there, but may not have a hole yet.

The only features of the FOX seat that will remain are:
|adjustable side wings.|
|adjustable leg supports.|
|adjustable lumbar (electric in some).|
|tilt back as well as forward.|
