I for one am sick and tired of having to inbed my left elbow into the door arm rest and my right elbow has to clamp onto the right seat bolster, or else I'm sliding out of the seat when I pull some g's. Plus every single honda seat I've ever sat in gives me a lower back ache. Sport seat like those are just what the doctor ordered. I'd still need em even if you HALVED my hp. And just like people with little dicks say, "it's not size that matters", "it's how you use it".:lol :lol :lol

Sweet... I'll go for black fabric in my ride tho... so how much is just one seat? and what mounting brackets did you use?

nice lookin seats...........they sure stand out. :eek:

I agree with Mr. Dunky on this one. Our stock seats are very uncomfortable. I replaced mine with Mazda 626 GT seats. They are adjustable in every possible way and were only $12.50 a piece. Here's a pic for anyone who hasnnt seen em. They are super comfortable.

I am a fan of the racing seats. Who cares if your car isnt fast. They look good and are better than the stock ones!

06-03-2002, 09:11 AM
Those look very good man....nice buy :)

Thanks for the nice comments (except for Nate, as usual)!

I got them for doing web work for Ketron Sales (LowAccord2 from the old board). They only come in sets, and you have to make custom mounting brackets to use them in 3rd gens (because of that hump under the front brackets on the stock seats).

I'm getting all of my interior and exterior done as much as I can before I by the 5th gen lude. Then, while I drive my lude, I can afford to sit the 3g for a few months to get the swap done.

Btw, the seats are $525.00 per set. They are extremely high quality (very comfy). Cloth with perforated leather trim. Fully adjustable (slide forward and back, recline forward and back).

Sparco makes seat adapters for our cars. I dont think they would work with your seat but its something good to know.

06-03-2002, 10:42 AM
It probably would work. These seats were designed to be similar to sparco's. If you had the measurements for the thing, I could check.

those look fantastic! I love the color! good job munky!

06-03-2002, 10:59 AM
:eek: all i gotta say is... daymn... :eek:

06-03-2002, 11:11 AM
I was just wondering.....do they make M.O.M seats also? Oh, and what about K.I.D? :D

06-03-2002, 11:56 AM
D.A.D. stands for Dynamic Auto Design... so no (clever comment though, sike).:p

Good job on the seats man, makes your car look faster, hehe , are ya gonna do anything to your rear seats? :stick:

06-04-2002, 09:03 AM
I would just take the rear seats out,

those seats look nice!

06-04-2002, 12:16 PM
i wanna sit in those

06-04-2002, 12:50 PM
wait nevermind, keep the rear seats, they come in handy! :D :D

06-04-2002, 02:42 PM
Very nice man! That blue stands out sooo much. They look perfect in your car. Good choice.


06-04-2002, 02:55 PM
Yeah the seats do look nice, but does anyone else think it's kinda wierd that Nate wets himself over any seat in any car. Maybe it's just me though. hehe.

06-04-2002, 03:28 PM
2 things.......the seats are NICE! they look kinda odd in a 4door! Meaning if u had a coupe or a hatchback they would go better with the 2door setup.....just a thought and U said they cost 525.00 for the set or each?
that is alot of money......U are halfway to a new engine!
But they do look good!!!!

Did you use the stock seat brackets?

If you did, how about a little info on putting those seats on your stock sliders please.:D

06-04-2002, 08:38 PM
They won't mount to the stock sliders since they mounted to the side of the stock seat. No worries though, since the seats come with new sliders. You just have to make a new mounting bracket (thanks to that stupid hump under the seats). I made the bracket so there's only four bolts (the stock bolts) to undo then the whole thing lifts out. I can get pics when I get my new carpet. If you see the pics, it's pretty self-explanatory on how to make the brackets. The hard part was figuring it out and lining it up.

if you guys want a nice seat that won't break the bank go to a junk yard and get some 87-91 prelude seats....teh rails fromt he 3rd gen bolt up to them adn work you just have to remove the center bolt on teh outside rail....adn add some washers to level the seat out....

drivers seat is fully adjustable for ballast adn lower back arch....put a set in my car...cost me around $40 tax in...look awesome adn feel great gives me the sporty feel

and the stock 3rd gen seats suck ass they break down adn are flat as ass
