Manual seat conversion

Has anyone had experience converting manual seats to power ? What does this take?

Strictly speaking, all you need is the full frame from a power seat. The cushions are the same for both, so you can re-use yours.

You'd need to run some power to them to make the motors functional.
Cleanest way is to use a factory plug, and splice into existing wiring.

By the way, shameless plug...
I have everything you need that I described above, because I was planning to do exactly that.
Now I'm going a different route.
PM me if you'd like to buy the frame and plugs
