^The other day I bought a pair of Custom COBRA MISANO seats..





^This is what is fixed to the under side of them at the moment.



My R33 just has standard seats and rails etc.. at the moment..

I want the seats to sit as low as possible, and if possible allow them to tilt back as well as slide etc like they should.. I'am 6'11" tall and want/need as much room as possible..
:attention:
****CAN ANYONE TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT ELSE I'LL NEED TO FIT MY NEW SEATS INTO MY CAR CORRECTLY ETC.. ???

I'm not a skyline expert but when I fitted my bucket seats to my Celica GT4 I took the rails of the original seats and then mounted them onto my buckets, this was both a sturdy fitment and a very low fitment, perhaps that would be a good idea?

Would that work on my reclining seats too? I like the idea of them sitting nice and low
I need as much room as possible due to my size..

Would all operations of the seat still work this way ?? - Martin.

Yes If I had them .P
Think I would of done the homework before buying to make sure it can be done, but I spoce all you need is a tape-measure welder and grinder and some box section channel and it can be made to fit anything with some time and effort , used ya org seats as a pattern. cant see it being that hard

I recently had a frame for my cobras from GSM. Took a while to make but the result was worth it.
My drivers one already has a 'bride low max' frame under it (supposes to be extra low)...

But when the passenger side came from GSM it was even lower than the drivers! cant fault it, straight bolt in no hassle

Yes mate because the reclining feature is built into the chair not the rails, you wont be able to move your chair backwards and forwards though unless you modify the bucket rails to bolt into the original rails which is a pain...

For cobra seat you need frames for cobra. Bride sparco etc are all different bolt pattern
^^^^^^^
its cut,shut and weld if not correct subframe.
This is very simple, corba subframe= cobra seat
Unless you can weld and fabricate

^So despite being the wrong pic...this is the correct order/advert for the ones I need ?

If so I will see if GSM can do me a deal or summink!?

Yeah I can't weld so I'll prob just go for the Cobra Sub-Frames.. How high do they end up making the seat if you know what I mean.. And how much higher than the stock seats will they be if at all ?? - Martin.
