Bonjour Sébasatien,

En fait si les connecteurs étaient si cher c'est parce qu’ils ne se vendent pas au détail : c'était le prix pour 100 et je n'arrive pas à en trouver au détail... Donc en stand by et j'avance sur le reste je te contacterais surement, parce qu’un autre modèle de connecteur n'est pas disponible en Europe mais uniquement au US.

J'attends d'avoir toutes les infos ;-)

It's on my short list of projects to finish up asap. I wasn't happy with the prototype hardware I'd had made and I decided to start with a clean design. I have a few people already interested in it so I'm hoping to have a new prototype very soon.

Thank's ;-)
You speak french great !
The weight gain saving are : 17,54 kg (38,66 lb) but I always have electric motors to move the seats.
I build a custom wiring loom to move the seats direcly with the OEM switch and to remove the steering wheel airbag warning light on the dashboard.

Tu es drolle toi, ma premiere langue est le Francais… I only learned English after joining the Canadian Military when I was 18yrs, it is hard to know who speak French here :-) You are talking about weight gain ?? not weight saving of 17,54kg ??

Phil57DBS is an unknown quantity at this point
si si je parle Français....et Irish07 aussi ...

Nice job done !

but with manual slides, the weight loss is still 38lbs more !!

So now with all your improvements, how much total weight loss do you have on the car?

He made a mistake in his first post, it wasn't gain 38lbs but lost 38lbs. They should have a little spot on the right, Join Date:, Location: etc and Language spoken :-)

Brunob is it 38lbs per seat weight savings, or in total across both?

Do you have the weight of the OEM seat and rail?

Thanks! Is that weight total including all of the railings etc?

do you have the weight of one OEM seat without railing? Looking into cobra Nogaros and trying to figure weight savings. Thanks.

I have a set of Nogaros being shipped. Not sure where they are, but I think they are close. If you can wait, I will post up the weights when I get them.
