    Take the brakets off of the stock seats and see what has to be done to fit them on the new seats.

    Sorry to hear about your condition bro.

    allready did that they wont work for the pure and very simple fact that the stock rails have one side that bolts up underneath and the other side bolts up on the side now i have been thinking about cutting off the part that bolts to the side but i still dont know if they are the same width apart as the stock seats and my crx got rear ended by a friend and also hit by a lady that wasnt paying attention

    Hmmmmm, that's tricky....glue the fuckers down! Otherwise you might just have to buy the brackets. The seats are kinds gay no offence, I would stock with stock.

    And the y49 curse strikes again...

    yeah thats another reason i am getting rid of my rexand i am not going to buy the brackets im prolly just going to weld them to the floori cant stand the stock seats that are in the car and whats even worse is that they are falling apart and the racing seats are kinda gay but are very very comfortable

    it's sleeper because everybody looks at it and thinks "sleeper".

    it's a sleeper sleeper.

    p.s. that word got really old, really fast.

    Thats a bullshit lie, thats a "nice car", not a sleeper. its a stock engine.

    you want a sleeper slap a boosted b20 or a boosted single cam. that would be a sleeper.

    calling it a sleeper would be just like adding a bunch of multi-colored stickers with shit it dosent have......AKA rice.

    Nice car but dont call it a sleeper unless it has something making over 200 WHP.
