Wow, is been a bit. Looks like y'all are doing well!
Jim and I have been good. It's been a crazy couple of years. Our oldest got married. He and his wife are expecting their first baby any day. We bought a house. Work is good.
I can't get over all the next generation AR members.

The prius line seems solid. My dad traded a pocket knife for a running, driving, Grand Wagoneer when I was a teenager. Trans cooler lines were leaking and the guys wife wanted it gone. I think it was a 91.

A couple of weeks ago, my wife asked me if she could use the K20 as a prop for a photoshoot for a friend who sells higher end clothing. So, I backed it into the yard and let them use it. When I went to pull it back into the garage, the orange sunset really made the thin layer of paint on this truck look good.

Honestly, I think a Pruis might be a decent buy. Those things seem like solid hybrids.

As I read through the first post I was thinking there is no way you could trade a watch for a car... But then I remembered I drove my $200 Comanche to the office while wearing a smartwatch :) The stuff you deal with should yield a nice ride.

I missed the part about repairing the seat. If you know someone with a welder, I would go that route first. A 99 isn't going to have air bags in the seat so it shouldn't a big deal to peel the skin back and weld the metal. Just don't catch the cushion on fire.

If it's a direct replacement, it's not that hard.  I did this in one of my Jeeps a while back.  There was nothing on that particular seat other than the handles for adjusting, no electronics, etc.  It was an easy, four bolt swap. 

Even with the electronics, if you get a seat from the same year with the same options, it should still be fairly simple.  As for repairing the back, I had my Cherokee recently repaired and found out it was broken in four places.  They can fix pretty much anything these days.  Of course, if you're comfortable with a welder, you can always take it apart yourself and do it, depending on what is broken.

You're better off getting a clean-ish matching seat from a junkyard or try to find one on Craigslist - maybe someone parting out a car. It will be a direct drop-in.

Depends on how good you're at at fabricating. Being a power seat already in the car, you will most likely need a manual bracket from a car outta the junkyard. That's when things might get tricky putting the bracket onto the "universal" seat. From my experience cutting and most likely welding will be involved. If you have a shop/garage, welder, and supplies this is no biggie. If not, better have your buddy do it.

Anyone got experience replacing seats in cars?

A friend of mine wants to gift me a 99 accord and it needs a new drivers seat, the back broke a bit. Runs and drives with the only problems being the seat and an oil leak.

How hard is it to replace em? PITA?

It's the leather interior with electric seats, i think. V6 EX.

I'm already looking at seats to see what my options are, but i have no idea what im doing. What kind of bracket do you get? Should I hire a pro?

Thanks in advance my dudes. Here's a seat I'm looking at; it's a beige interior.
