    I just bought a Sparco EVO 2 (US) seat with matching bottom-mount rails and hardware from Amazon. You gotta love Prime! :)

    For now, I'm just going to run a single seat. The car is already corner-weight balanced with me in the driver's seat, so it won't be too far off (though I get to go through this again when I change out my coilover setup, again!).

    If this goes in nicely, I'll probably add a matching seat down the road. I'm jazzed about the weight savings here!

    Also, my front Recaro and rear seats have been sold. Congrats, DBS! :)

    You'll notice I swapped out the cloth grey headrests for the black leather headrests from my Titanium seats. Why? I already had the three rear low-profile, plus the front headrests are tilt-adjustable (the regular ST headrests are not). The ST headrests are also narrower, as you can see, which is why they likely cannot accommodate the tilt-adjust mechanism.

    McRib 1s Back,
    From DBS' photos, your seat mounts will be easy.
    Send me photos of the new seat hardware.

    DBS,
    Looks very good.

    Great looking setup indeed! :)

    Also, my Sparco-specific rails line up with the stock floor points just fine. I just need one more set of brackets. These are side mount only! No big deal. I'll have them in a couple days...

    So...

    This seat is awesome! I'm glad I went with the "US". I'm not a big guy, but I don't fit in the regular one at all. Seriously, that extra 1.5" makes a big difference (especially in the shoulders!).

    "Planted" makes great universal side-mount brackets. I'm buying another set for my passenger, eventually. No need for the sliding adjuster rail on that side! ;)

    It looks like it was made for the car.

    How much did you sell the interior for? I am half minded to sell my front and rear seats and purchase a pair of Corbeau seats for the front... I never use the rear seat ever.
