im having a nightmare
« on: 17:23, Sun 21 August 2011 »
having bought my 1st car i wanted to do things myself like fit some new seats and stuff

to make it all worse i attemped the drives seat not passengers so now i have a car i cant frigging move

What seats were in it, and what are you trying to put in?
Are they original Renault 5 seats or Buckets or something?

Not the 1st time this type of post has appeared on here! You can make any seats fit. I fitted honda CRX seats many years back you just have to chop the runners about a bit, align them in the car for where you want the seats and weld them to the bases  8)

got to agree any seat can fit. i was going to fit crx seats in mine but couldnt find any at the time so i went for toyota celica seats. they are very tight fit and was a pain i the butt to fit . making the rails/frame to fit the different bolt placements was the easy part

i think the passenger seat will fit the drivers side but obviously the controls wont be on the right sides lol
