    I have a 62 Mini Cooper that I put a pair of 96-97 Del Sol seats in, several years ago.

    The rails in the Mini are positioned where they were in the Del Sol.

    They are great seats for the road, but I've been doing a lot of "Track Days" and am looking to buy a drivers seat that I can strip down and re-upholster to hold me in better.

    SO, what I am looking for is a list of Honda seats that will fit the Del Sol rails exactly. (Slide the old seats out on track day, slide the new ones in. When I get home, slide the new ones out and the old ones in...you get the idea)

    Anybody know of such a list?
    :)
    THANKS!!!
    Jim

    Seats

    Thanks.
    I think I've read that S2000 will fit, but are not a slide in replacement.
    Anyhow, finding S2000 seats in poor condition (AKA "Cheap") isn't easy!

    i dont think there are any other oem honda seats that will hold you in any better than the del sol seats. the recaros that come in type Rs are the only other really supportive oem seat that would work with those rails.... but they are expensive.

    I don't know much about stock seats, but I have some friends using a 1g eagle talon seat for their hit to pass car and it's pretty comfy and bolstered... I'm sure there are probably some slightly older nice cars that have really comfy/sporty seats in them...

    i'd say +1 to some race seats, if you can find a decent one/pair used.
