    Found some nice leather seats (front and rear) from a 97 Cobra Coupe and hoping they will fit without issues in my 97 Cobra Convertible. Will they fit right in?

    I believe I have my answer regarding the rear seat. The coupe is wider across the back by approx. 10 inches and wider across the bottom by approx. 6 inches so that pretty much rules out using the rear seat from the coupe.
    Still hoping the front seats will fit without problems, can anyone confirm?

    I did install the front seats without issues. The rear seat (bottom and back) was a no go, does not fit and currently sitting in storage.
