      This is an aftermarket heating and cooling unit that works similar to the OEM styles with the heat exchanger. Seems somewhat universal, but since the foam doesn’t incorporate the ductwork, I question how comfortable the “ventilation pad” is

      Web search says $2195 installed is the MSRP. I assume that's with the leather cover and cushion which has to be compatible. No vintage cars listed on their web page, but with a new OEM seat it seems very doable. Nice find!

      That is cool (pun yes), but ventilated not cooled. A client just delivered 6 new seats, 2 are black perforated leather buckets. If they don't want them back I'll probably dissect a bit

      The Katskinz unit is blowing cooled air, not just ambient. Best option (IMO) would be to get that unit and hook it up to the ventilation system of the Benz (or whatever seats youre getting)

      I think you are right Chris, don't think I want to spend 2500 on parts for seats tho

      Have the cooling seats in our Cayenne, I think the seats are a Recaro variant. Boy do I love those seats on a hot summer day trip. Doesn't seem to affect any other cooling or rear passengers. But cool butt breeze is felt in the seat of the pants LOL. Just got me wondering about the Trans Am seats I'm gonna put in the 69 Camaro. Using perforated material in the seat centers and back center panels... but there's not much room to get that cool air from the Vintage Air system thru the console and into the seats. Definitely need a seat with a bit of a pedestal I'd think.
