Seat swap list

Recommended Posts

the good thing about the 350z seats is they are a lot lower. I'm short, but I had to use 3 of the spacers that come with the stock seats to get the Z seats up to a decent height.

 

My car came with a plastic summit racing seat, and my helmet hit the roof. With 3 spacers I've still got over an inch of headroom with the helmet on. THe 350 seat rails sit above the seat bottom.

Looks great! How much fab'ing did it take to fit? What did you do to get it to fit? I owned a 2004 Touring model and the seat controls irritated me (on the thigh). I felt the hardness of the controls.

 

Thanks

thats why I like the non-power track seats better!

 

I drilled a couple holes in the stock sliders and put a bolt and nut through to make them immobile, then I cut off the handle.

 

Mounted angled bar stock across the stock sliders perpendicular

 

Cut the legs off of the Z seats

 

Mounted the Z seats sliders onto the bar stock.

 

The front drivers seat is height adjustable in the front part, so I needed something to hold the left and right sides together. I used a heavy cable and turnbuckle to tighten since I don't have a welder or fancy stuff like that.

Kregan/summit leather racing seats fit if you remove the knobs off the ends. the only problem with them is that they raise you up from the floor about 2 inches. so if you are tall they are a no go. otherwise, great swap

 

do u have pictures of the summit leather seats swaped in a z? im intrested in doing that swap. If someone has pictures i would appreciate it!

Hey 2003Z

 

Which model 350Z came w/o electric controls. I thought they were all the same. The damn controls is one of reasons I traded it in for G35 Sedan.

That and those f..ing front tires.

 

Thanks

Base, Enthusiast and Track and Performance. Touring was the only one with electric/leather. Grand Touring now too.

I paid $55 for my mr2 seats at the JY, they had no rips or tears, just very dirty. nothing a bissell wouldn't fix. They weighed about 15-20lbs each tops, driver seat had manual adjustment for lumbar, bolsters, and thigh support: 10 way seat.

 

to swap in, jon miwa (jumbo240ez) helped me shove those in with aid of a mig welder and fabricating easy brackets from some materials from local orchard supply hardware. You can see progress and bracket pics in the link I provided above

i had to remove them the same day cuz i couldnt drive witht hem in there due to my height. they raise you up about 1.5 inch. I had them in my honda for about a year and they were the most comforable seat ive ever felt for the price

Here are the S2000 seats sitting in my Z. They are not a bolt in and required the sheet metal to be modified to get them to sit in the car. The trans tunnel is too wide on the drivers side of my 280z for these to fit. I had to beat that down. I'm going to be doing some welding for nice brackets this week hopefully.
