Seat swap list for s30's


Recommended Posts

The RSX seats have been done before in a 280Z, they required some tunnel hump bashing though and I think they sat a little high for the person over 6ft in height.

Search the site, it may be posted in the Pinned/Stickie for seat swaps.

 

I don't believe the BMW 3 Series seats have been installed in a 280Z yet. They already have been installed in the 240Z and 260Z

 

Again do a search, Search is your best friend, the list of seats in the first post have all been confirmed installs and can be located on this site by searching.

Thanks,

Greg

Just installed 5mm flat bar at the bottom of Lancer EVO8 Recaro seat. I need to drill a adjustment hole on the original seat rails.  

Bad picture, but they fit. I just need to mess with either making new sliders or modding the stock ones to fit on these seats. They are out of a ZZW30, 3rd Gen Toyota MR2

These are '95 Prelude seats on our 280z and they fit fine. The cat hump required some reshaping (*ahem*) but the seat  fits my 6'1" frame fine. We used the stock Datsun runners bolte

i have RSX seats and let me tell you that hump is one bad mammmer jammer i felt bad with the hump bashing but they sit like an inch away from the ceiling maybe 2 they way i mounted mine. Luckily i have the base model cloth rsx seats and am willing to sell them for 400 + shipping if anybody wants them.

I will be installing some BMW 325is seats in my 75' as soon as I can get some cash in the datsun account. Will post install pics.

 

Thanks icapture, I am looking forward to your install, What year is the 325is?

 

Stopped at a local pick and pull walked the complete yard looking for any decent leather seats, Only found some decent leather seats in an Audi wagon and a Volvo wagon..I didn't even bother to measure as just by looking I knew they were too wide.

Oh well, keep on looking.....

Definitely will when I get them in. Unfortunately Sparco discontinued the Speed (they still make the Speed 2) and the one that they sent me was Black/Blue (one of the few left). I have changed my order to the Sprint 5, so this will delay the progress a bit.

1988 Subaru Legacy.

Excuse me for questioning this but as someone who knows a little about those cars, 1990 was the first model year for the Legacy and the earliest production date I know of is in 1989. This would mean the earliest MY Legacy you could've pulled seats from would be a 1990.

 

Just wanted to clear that up a bit just in case people are scrounging around looking for that ever-rare 1988.

What year 3 series? I found some on Craigslist that I emailed, no year was listed though.

TritleZ, there are several threads on the Miata seat swap, do a search.

 

I came across a nice set of 2002 Toyota Celica Leather seats and I am waiting for the person to respond with dimensions, I know I have the 2000 Celica GT on the list already so I'll post this up once I get an answer. If they seem to fit I''l buy them and document the install.

Thanks,

Greg

 

I am in the middle of installing 5th gen Celica leather seats right now. I ended up having to cut the hump out and patch it with a concave piece to make it work. I am using the toyota slides to a custom bracket. I just cut all of the brackets off the bottom and welded a nut inside of the track to bolt to the bracket. Currently I only have the driver seat complete but I am working on the passenger now. Here are some pics.

I used 1/8" plate because you have to cantilever the bracket.
