Hi, Lucca, nice writeup. I understand about using a stock accessory seat, and if it would work for me I'd go that way too. However I need all the space I can squeak out of the car's very limited interior space, including the space at the rear of the seat bottom between the slide brackets! So I'll be trying to get on with the seats; right now I'm battling the car's interior, trying to easly remove the carpeting, center console, and so on. The cloth-covered parts on the rear window ledge are not that easy to remove, either; especially the long, curved piece under the rear window. It seems that the factory decided to attach threaded posts to the sides and center of the aluminum trim piece, then attach it thru the bulkhead with 10mm nuts, which are covered by an aluminum panel on the engine bay side, which panel cannot be removed (without removing the engine, apparently) to access the three 10 mm nuts holding the trim piece on the inside. I may have to remove the posts from the cockpit side with a very fine hole saw on a drill, then fish out the posts & nuts on the engine side and figure out an easier way of attaching the panel from the cockpit side only. All this because I want to recover the many small pieces covered in that stupid textured cloth that frays easily, holds dirt oh so well, and cannot be cleaned. Black vinyl it is, to match the dashboard!
But I digress.
More about the seats, later... the sooner the better.
