    ok i know everyone loves racing seats and the gsr seats. here is the question at hand.
    1 if i get a racing seat how do i transfer over the seatbelt clip it seems like it is built into the seat.
    2 if i had a seat from a 93 integra (which has the seat belt clip on the chasis) how do i transfer over the seat belt clip?

    the car is a 97 civic let me know thanks guys

    Most good aftermarket seat brackets have mounts for the stock seat belt hardware. All Corbeau brackets (for cars that mount the belts on the seats) have mounts for the belts.

    Those $300 ebay "race seats" suck balls!! You get what you pay for with them.
    For $300 nothing beats the quality,fitment of OEM Honda/Acura seats.
    I paid $350 for my Del sol seats,feel great and dropped right into my hatch.
    You buying some cheapo imitaiton race seats over some Nice OEM Teg seats makes NO sense to me. <_<
    Don't be a cheap ricer!

    Here ya go...

    Yeah... if your budget for seats is only $300, then the only good way to go is used OEM seats. Any pair of "racing seats" you can buy new for $300 on eBay is going to be junk, and their brackets/rails will always require customization.

    Buy used OEM or step up and buy a set of Corbeaus with custom made brackets that bolt straight in- it'll cost you about $700-800, but it's worth it.

    thanks for the info but the main question still eludes me is the seat belt part that is on the seat connected to the rail or is it apart of the seat itself?

    Spend some $$ for the better 94-01 Integra Ls/GsR seats.Scrap the cheapo racingseat idea.
    The seat belt clip on the teg seats is attached to the rails.You'll end up regretting you bought the "racing seats".They are not very comfortable & cheaply made.

    On the Civic it's mounted to the seat bracket/rail. It's probably the same with the Integra.

    I think 2nd gen teg seats(90-93) are different than 3rd gen tegs(94-01).
    94-01 Teg seats should bolt right in or you may have to swap one rail.The 2nd gen teg ones i do not think the rails will match up.I may be wrong but something tells me there is a difference. :unsure:

    but the question still stands when you take the rail off does the seatbelt part come off to? only because my seats have that plug for the seatbelt light that is why i want to know
