Those I believe are the early Scheel 500's.(Hard to tell on my B-berry) but period correct seats for our beautiful cars. FWIW..the originalfabric can be had for 60 euros per meter and you should be fine with two.2002 specific sliders with tilting action are available..I have my pair coming soon. Nice find

Armond

I'm pretty sure Auto Sport Spezialsitze is the brand name, although

I wouldn't be surprised if they were made at the same manufacturer

as the Scheels.

I am interested in the tilting bases you found.

Can you shed any more light on that?

And I think the acronym is pretty appropriate,

wonder if they thought about that?

Nick are the seats in the pic below yours?

If so, that is kind of the look I am going for.

Dropped them off at a shop today.

He's going to come up with some material samples and then I'll

go in and decide what to go with.

I'm going with good vinyl for the outsides etc., but not sure what

I'l finally do with the inserts.

I'm thinking gray/black corduroy or something like that.

The upholsterer is an older German craftsman, he just finished an interior

on a Duesenberg, which won first place at a concours in Auburn Indiana.

So I'm going to pay top dollar for them, but I think they will be worth it.

Do you have the tilting brackets that Armond is referring to?

Thanks

Hi Tony - they're exactly like those, but I think they're the ones that went for 950 euros on ebay.de just recently. Crazy money and almost 4 times what I paid. One of mine has a tiliting mechanism built in, which will do for rear access.

I've got a different pair of scheels in my m2 that have a rotary adjusting back, but don't tilt for rear access - these are mounted on an original scheel tilting base, which is a pretty crude metal framework, with lots of sharp edges to take out ankles, and also make the seat sit too high unless you cut up the floor a bit.

here is the tilting bracket im talking about. Available from NML Depot in Germany...Ask for Gerrit. Let me know what corduroy you'll end up using please. Thanks

That's what I've got in the m2 - pretty unimpressive piece of engineering and something anyone competent with a welder could come up with TBH. I know a Dutchman that might have some of these - no doubt a shed load less than the German Scheel specialist.

Ok, I thought the tilting bracket was to change the incline of the seat bottom for greater comfort.

Both my seats will tilt forward for rear seat access.

In the picture below, the metal piece that look like a handle is actually part of the hinge mechanism and it's cut out like that to give room for the seat cushion bolster when it tilts forward. The angled lever is for recline and the straight one is for tilt forward.

Nick,

I have my seats coming but havent pulled the trigger on the tilting brackets or the sliders. Do you mind looking into your source and inquire about price and availability? thanks
