NC Seats

I am curious as to what aftermarket seats people are using that fit the NC, whether or not you used Brian's NC Seat Rails with them and if you had to modify anything to make them fit. It almost appears that the upper shoulder widths of most seats won't fit?

I just installed Sparco Fighter seats using Brian's seat rails and Sparco sliders. I bolted the sliders directly to the seat rails. The Fighter is a bottom mount seat, so I had to fabricate two steel "straps" to cross between the sliders. The seats in the NC are offset to the center of the car in reference to the seat rail-to-floorpan, so I had to "trial and error" the mounting holes. I also had to fabricate brackets to use the OEM seat belts. I'm MORE than happy with the results.

I'll have pics after this weekend's autocross.

I don't know about you, Chris, but my weekend's autocross (the DC ProSolo) is over. So I'd love to see your pics.

Also, can you tell me how much weight you estimate you saved and how your seat height was impacted?

My NC2's passenger seatbelt terminates in the seat bottom, rather than the at the floor. Are the NC1 seatbelts like that? How is that issue handled when replacing seats?

Chis,

Can you post those photos, please? Thanks.

Nice looking seats. Does the Recaros still offer seat height adjustment for the driver?
