Which seats for mustang?

I'm looking for a new pair of front seats for my 1988 mustang gt. My current ones have broken backs that spring back when you lean on them, which is very irritating. I took one seat out yesterday and rewelded a floor mount bracket that had literally snapped in half (previous owner did it). Scat makes a series of seats called procar. I dont want to spend anything over $200 a seat, and I know that wont get me much but the ones that scat makes look nice for how much they cost. I also know that I want something vinyl for the durability factor and resistance to any stains. The procar seats can be seen here . Has anyone tried these seats or can tell me anything about them? Thanks for the help

I know that Scat Procar seats are available in several models.

I rescued a pair out of a VW Beetle a few years ago (the old guy wanted an original pair of bug seats, so I swapped him from my stock of parts).

Those seats are very deep, high strong bolsters...and waaaay too tight for my big back end. Maybe if I was 5'9" and 160 I could fit in them. ALso, in that particular application the seat tracks/mounts were cheesy with a capital CH. Wobbled and flimsy and I'd have squashed them on the first ride.

But they're still packed away up in my loft awaiting reupholstery for either display or sale in one of the cars I'm redoing on my own.

Again, back to advocating using OEM seating. Why reweld and gussett your frames and restyle them with new covers?? Sounds like you can do the welding and strengthening. Save your pennies and retain the stock seats with fun covers.
