Seat Modification for Large and Tall Drivers

 

We have modified many seat tracks and floor pans to accommodate large and tall drivers. The modifications required depend on the driver’s needs as well as the vehicle in question. Sometimes a simple seat track swap will do the trick, other jobs call for more in-depth fabrication and design. No matter what the job, the crew at Cleveland Power and Performance is ready to get you comfortable behind the wheel. Take a look at some of our past work. 

 

The driver of this 2005 Dodge Viper just needed a little extra headroom while driving. A simple seat track swap did the trick.

 

The Driver of this Mustang GT needed quite a bit of headroom to safely drive the vehicle to its potential. We modified both the floor pan and seat track safely to gain ample room.

 

This 19854 Blazer was brought to us by a customer who wanted some updated comfort in his classic truck. We installed these late model Chevy pickup seats while retaining the functionality of the passenger side tilt feature.

Custom Upholstered Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Seats

We took a set of of rough Dodge Challenger scat pack seats from our inventory and transformed them in our interior shop. The job started by fully disassembling the seats, thoroughly inspecting  & cleaning the frames, creating templates for our new hides, cutting materials to size, sewing and stitching our new covers and reassembling the seats. These one of a kind custom Challenger seats came out amazing. Take a look at the pictures below to see the project from start to finish.

C4 Corvette Complete Custom Interior

A customer of ours reached out to us to discuss what we could do to bring some new life to his interior. This is a very well kept vehicle and an extremely nice example of a C4. With the original leather showing its age, the customer opted to bring in some color to make this vehicle truly one of a kind. We will be completely gutting this interior and recovering the panels, seats, etc with new and vibrant materials!

Wrecked C8 Corvette

 

A few of the Power and Performance crew members went down to the auction to check out a wrecked Viper. We stumbled upon this wrecked C8 Corvette while we were there. This 2020 Vette honestly didn’t look too bad. This was a pretty nice surprise, so we figured we would share! This is likely the first wrecked C8 in greater Cleveland and possibly in the state of Ohio! We would sure love to rip down the driveway in a C8 Vette kart!
