I found this terrible site at Harry's U Pull It in Hazelton Pa. I know I've seen this car at a car show or two . It's a victim of a roll over to the driver side. Anyone have the story? Oops I can't attach from my phone, I'll post pic in just a bit...

That is a sad demise of a Color Concept. I would dare to say, though, that those seats are pretty trashed. :(

from what I'm seeing, looks like the seats are salvageable. definitely worth looking into a little deeper. A good cleaning, you could put the seats and make a decent little profit.

They were ripped in the red section passenger seat and the axles were laying on them sad state of condition. Are these seats heated btw? Did they have the airbag in the color concept seats, didnt see the label

Yes, they're heated sport seats. The best. And, yes, airbags. Too bad they were trashed. They could have been re-purposed. :(

The only caution I'd point out is that in rough collisions, the backrests can twist. Granted if they were, and one had a set of good (junk) seats, they can be fixed yes.

Yeah, I noticed your post right after I posted mine. I never thought about the seats possibly being bent :eek:.

Neither did I until it happened to my '00. It was... quite visible, to say the least. :D

I returned to the car to find the seats still there so I brought them home. 66 bucks total cost for the front and backs. The red material is mega shot but I'm going to have them done in platinum grey or silver for my silver nb , haven't decided yet

If you need someone to do your seats, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND fellow orger Timmy, screen name Bugshop. He did Cup's custom interior. I removed the seat covers, UPS'd them to hin (lives in SC) He did the work per my instructions to perfection. He's good people too.

you can see the work on Cup's seats on her photo thread.
