My new seat install
« on: March 17, 2019, 03:50:10 PM »
I finally got a hold of some mx5 seats. Then i read that nb seats dont fit but na do. You guessed it i got nb. For $200 I was going to make them fit. Everything i read says swap drivers seat to passenger side and vice versa. I do like to challenge the status quo so i went about installing them in their rightful positions. So now i have nb seats, both recline and slide and on their natural sides. Just need to make handles for the recliner levers as they hurt your fingers when operating. But all in all a good out come. Wondring what others think?

Looking good Pete, does the roll bar interfere with your right shoulder?

Thanks Drakman. No the rollbar does not intefere. That said the rollbar was modified a bit several years ago and they mount closer to the outside of the paniers that usual.

Now just need sash belts. Thinking of just using fixed belts rather than retractable. Saves having to weld plates to rollbar.
