    My 89' K5 has driver and passanger seats that are in need of a little attention... they got some decent amout of rust on the base....so my question is....has anyone else fixed this problem (repainted them i assume), and how difficult was it to do (ie: is it a sunday afternoon job or does it require a little more time)..... thanks-

    The seat braces on blazers are 8 bolts to remove driver side, 4 bolts to remove passenger side, and then you can take the braces off of the seats, but if they are really rusty, be sure not to snap rusty bolts from under the seats.
    you can remove the braces from the seats themselves, then sand, primer, paint...
    hope you can understand this :)

    Theres no replacement for displacement!

    The 89 seats are bolted on the pedestals with 4 bolts each. I recently removed mine and it took me less than 15 minutes to remove both front seats and pedestals. Sand the bases down, blast em with some primer and paint and you're good to go. An easy afternoon job...[​IMG]

    A warning about the bolts, if they are rusty they snap easily and then you will have to drill , tap, etc...
    turns and easy job into a long one.
    if the bolt heads under the seats look rusty, use caution, spray em down with wd40 or some kind of oil.

    And to keep the moisture from coming back up to your base after you pretty everything up, put a dab of silicone caulk on the bolts when you put it all back together.
