    their brackets are extrremely overpriced. I've never priced some brackets before but $78 a piece? No thanks, I'll make my own. The seats themselves aren't a bad price but my friend bought some "Netami" seats off E-Bay. I don't know what he paid but they are decent. Fully adjustable and he made his own brackets as well. Only 3 holes line up, but the seats don't move around at all :lol:

    Holy shit, maybe I should keep my sliders from the DADs. They weigh a metric buttload though, almost as much as the seats.

    The CRX is still lightweight, I was able to fab up a c bracket that is twice as strong as the steel it's attached too. When fabbing up your rails, remember they have to withstand an accident.

    I won't be fabbing my sliders but I will be fabbing my own brackets.

    The bracket is gonna be for the Z though so I dunno why you'd want one, B. :lol:

    Well, on those Netami seats, the sliders are attatched to the seat (at least on his they were) Anyway, so all we had to do is pretty much make the holes line up. The brackets that I made are pretty much extensions because the seats were too wide. Should of made myself more clear. If I need to actually make my brackets when I get seats, i'll take some pics and if you guys like them, i'll start making them. :D

    Shit, 640 a pair isn't a good buy? I thought it was pretty decent for a reclining "sport" seat.

    250 for a full on corbeau assbucket isn't too damn bad though.

    1982-1989 Toyota 12 ways = the Thinking man's Recaro.


    Or, for a direct fit look into a factory Honda / Acura seat. Integra seats look like they have better bolsters at least.

    I personally am looking for a competition-style assbucket for the Z.

    I'll gladly sacrifice comfort for safety in this case.

    Here is what the Hitchhiker's Guide has to say about "Safe racing seats":

    The internet is a wonderful, voluminous virtual machine that was built to seperate a man from One thousand dollars, and then return to him a Kirkey seat that was made in a Missouri shop class.

    Sorry Brian. You need to slow the fuck down when you go to type something. :lol:

    So I should be looking at a Kirkey? I only need one. I'm leaving the stock seat in the passenger side.

    They're too "plush". And, one of them has a tear in the upholstery.
