    Default Installing after market seats

    OK, so I got myself a pair of aftermarket reclinable seats.

    I need the brackets but autotecnica does not make them for the Trueno.

    Anyone have recommendations where in WA I can get a set made up and possibly have the seats installed?

    Thanks

    You'd better off getting some rails made specifically for AE86 from Japan, such as Bride rails.

    Type-MO: Reclinable seats (EURO II / Old model reclining / Other sport seat maker)

    Type-FO: Bucket seats (ALL BRIDE FULL BUCKET SEATS)

    Type-FG: Bucket seats (ALL BRIDE FULL BUCKET SEATS)

    Type-LR: Reclinable Seat (GIAS / STRADIA Seat Only)

    Type-LF: Bucket seats (Low Max System)

    pretty sure kyp has a few 86 seat rails around. take your seat and see if they match the bolt patterns on the rails. I had to order the Bride RS seat rail to suit the seats bolt pattern.
    try hunt around for a some seat specs to see what measurements you need for bolt holes. alternatively a drill and a welder are also viable options when fitting a new bucket seat.

    I'll even throw in a 6 pack of beer if someone can help me get the seats bolted onto rails and into the car!
