    help for the newbie!!!!
    my 93 ex coupe has mismatched buckets. pass is original in good condition. drivers is a different fabric(but still grey/black)but has holes.
    i would like to change-out to a more aggressive looking OEM product.

    i have 2 different ideas/choices based on availability and price.
    i just dont know if either is feasable.

    1 pair is from a 95 JDM integra 2 door

    the other is from a '91 JDM Honda CRX SiR

    i guess my main issue is instalation compatibility. im not opposed to some minor customization. i just dont want to re-invent the wheel.

    has anybody walked down my path in their shoes?

    advice??....comments??.....go ahead let me have it!!!!
    i havent been called a dumbass yet today....lol

    in rice we burn, tom

    thanks guys,
    i guess i'll start searching for del sol seats.......
    ill see what i find.
    im not in a big hurry....no urgency
    but the interior would be officially complete with up-graded seats.

    the exterior doesnt need much, still pretty good.
    a couple of door dings....and thank god, no rust yet!

    ive started collecting components for my b16a2 swap.
    im scheduling for april.....
    thought about doing it before winter.......but why?

    i did a water pump and all the belts today.......went well with one exception...
    THE CRANK PULLEY BOLT!!!!!

    i have not had one come out nicely ever.
    i broke alot of tools this morning(numerous trips to NAPA AND SEARS HARDWARE)

    it tested well tonight....whisper quiet at idle.
    and growls like a bear when i kick it in the ass.
    was fun to push it hard in the rain....the new yokohamas work well.
    it was the first time they got wet.

    enough rambling.......

    thanks for the heads up on del sol seats.......
    if somebody has a source or is looking to lose a pair of them, let me know.

    if not, i still dig the jdm Si-R seats i was drooling over.

    tom...with bleeding knuckles (its a good look)

    they come in black, with colored stripes that match the color of the car i believe...

    you can find them on ebay ocassionally.

    well.......
    i've found a few pairs of del sol seats.
    personally, they're not very visually appealing to me. but then, i'm old...lol
    both of my boys thought they were ok. (18 and 26) ;younger point of view

    so... i am to assume that they are nice to sit in.
    no sliding around? holds you firmly? comfortable for a multi-hour drive?

    if so.....i'll get used to the look.
    they do resemble some after-market race seats.

    i wish i could sit in them before plunking down a couple hundred....but i'll throw caution to the wind on this.

    maybe my local carmax has a del sol on the lot.....
    and give it a "test sit"
