    I picked up a couple of things off craigslist this week. I think I did really well.

    The first is a brand new Fluidyne Aluminum Rad, it's their Sportsman model #FRR34315-16 which I would imagine is the lowest of the line? It's a two row 28.5 x 18 x 2.25. The hose connections are AN - 16 and the lower is a slip on.

    Pretty decent quality, I've seen Flexalite's and they aren't quite as pretty but I paid a sixth of the price!

    The second is a pair of 2001 Acura RSX seats. I got the whole set but of course I'm only using the fronts. Leather, and heated for those fall evenings when you still have the soft top on! I would've been happy with a vinyl seat but finding a good quality one is tough. I wanted something sportier and something I could easily wipe off the mud and dog hair off of.

    Great find!

    Those seats are pretty cool. Remember to power them so they are controlled by the ignition.

    yeah how would you do that? Just run power to them from one of the spots in the fuse box that comes on with the ignition...then put an inline switch to turn them on and off?

    Yeah that's what I figure. They also have side air bags. I'm not too sure if I like the idea of those staying in there, so I'm going to figure out how to get them out. I should be able to get a couple bucks for them too, there are always guys looking to buy airbags on Craigslist.

    I didn't mention it because I don't have pics, and I know everyone likes pics, but I also picked up a set of fiberglass front quarters for $80.00!

    On allot of the air bagged seats, when the bag blows the whole seat has to be replaced. You may do more damage than good trying to remove them. Just find the wire harness to the bags and insure you don't hook power to them. They can't go off if there is nothing powering them.
