Evo 9 MR Recaro seats to IS300

Anyone wanna help me a bit with a best way to mount this into my IS300?

I need to be functional.
I need to buy the bypass so all my air bag still working.
The seat doesnt have any bracket left.

You need to talk to Toms2JZ....I think he could help a little.

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

Get the Token Solution Plug and play Air bag SIM for both sides...I think his member name is BlackSportD . You could modify your stock rails to work. You would need a shop or someone who kknows what they are doing. Post pics when you're done.

definitely use the token solutions sims that a no brainer ... you can check the bolt spacing on teh under side of the seats and cross reference / compare them to the spacng on different rail/slider s available for after market seat installations.... or a auto upholstery shop can custom fab up a set as needed

years ago I slapped a set of golf gti recaros into my 2L Datsun 510 sedan using custom rails that a friend who could weld and i put together...they worked perfectly & what a freekin difference THAT made.

just got 2 altezza low mount recaro rails cheap from some guy in new zealand for AU$200 bolted them up and got 2 AU$30 trd airbag cancellers, done

I'll dig some pics up later if you need.

Edit: I know bride rails for an altezza will also fit but may be 5mm off so 2 mounting holes need to be elongated, just make sure you use the right bolts and washers if that's the case.

bring them over to sage and ill weld the brackets for you. but you will lose your factory brackets so dont expect to sell your seats as a plug an play to someone else.

Putting stickers on fake wheels to pass them off is the same as a girl rocking a fake Gucci or a Lamborghini kit car or some fake Jordan's. If you can't afford to play then rock the lower end brands and stop playing yourself.
