Default Rsx seat swap

I just wrapped up swapping in seats from an rsx, and thought I'd share my findings., front mounting points do lineup, but the road gets a little bit in the way. You want to use bolts with the shortest heads you can find otherwise you can't adjust the seat back and forth properly. I cut the bolts down to size and use the flattest nuts I can find for the Rears. The seat is a few inches wider and since an inch or two taller even at its lowest settings. It is exceptionally comfortable but as someone who is pretty tall I'd like it to be shorter

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Which year RSX does this work with? Looks to be the 05-06 with the rails I see online.

These look very tempting, though no junkyard or online advert has these for parts. The seats available online are quite expensive, wonder what other car may have suitable seats?

I've been finding quite a few more black leather seats from S series in my area, but they are either destroyed beyond repair or someone prior to me couldnt get the front nuts off and destroys the rails.

If the rails are destroyed just move your current ones over or some from cloth seats. The other option is to collect the leathers and foam and move them over to another seat frame. If I recall correctly you can move a passenger seat cover over to the drivers seat. The driver seat is usually pretty worn.

2003-2005 Neon SRT seats have been moved over in similar fashion to the Acura seats. The front bolts line up but the rears are too short. Here's the tread and a photo >> Worlds FIRST SRT-4 Swapped SC2!
