Installing power seats in a non power seat car

I am planning to buy some 124 seats with power backrest and installing them in my Chebby wagon. I think I can probably install them on my frame and get power front to rear but no switch for the reline feature.

Has anybody installed similar seats in a 123? If so what did you do about the reclining feature?

I haven't done it but it shouldn't be too difficult with a wiring diagram in hand. Ideally you should get the seat switches and harnesses to transplant.

I swapped Recaros into my 300CE but now want the power bottom of the stock seat.

Thanks for the response. Since I am putting them into a chevy instead of a benz I will not have the option of putting the mb switch into the door.

So I am wondering where I can put the switch. I am thinking maybe there is a place I can mount it on the front or side.
