Rupe i think u need to think outside the car like 70NYD does if it simply doesn't fit you make it fit Next we'll hear that he's modified the height of the roof in order to fit the seat

lol when i first got my car i couldn't get my knees under the wheel, then dad played with the settings out the side and realised that the seats do infact lower, however that doesn't solve the low clearance of head height i have lol

why wouldn't we talk about ur shoulders:P lol

anyway they flip a coin when you order your coffee, if you call it right its free.

i actually work at QUT so i'm in and out all the time, i'll be in tomorrow and should be free around 11-11.30.

you're lucky, i finish on the 22nd, but i only have 3 exams, 13, 20, 22

Do the Monza seats actually have the ADR sticker on them as the Isotta do.
I have been wanting those seats for ages I bought bride rails so as to not muck
around with the std ones but haven't bought the seats yet. The Monza as you
know are cheaper but I am concerned they just say they are ADR cause they
are copies of the Isotta which are. I need to be overly picky as when I do get
pulled over its a fairly fine tooth comb the police use regardless of the engineering
certificate I have.

yes they have a tag on the lower back of the seats saying that the seats comply and exceed the test quslifications for ADR3/02 something along those lines, then there are some numbers in a box under it ... yep the numbers are the date the tag was put on, end of last year

question.. would this look dicki in the back seat??
the little thing you can see poking out the back will fit in the reccess that is left by the arm rest.. and its not 100% to scale cus i mocked it up in 15 min

i was actually thinking white leatherette and get the rear seats a throwover in white as well

im clearly putting money down the wrong holes.. i should be getting extractors with a flexy joint and better sway bars but im waisting time on this sht...

interior makes you smile only once when you 1st look at it.

but sways bars will make you smile every time you time a corner at high speed and the car rails it.

after 2.5 very frustrating days, the seats are in
the extra .5 was for taking them out and readjusting how they mount to the rail so that it is 1" further back, so i can fit easier. they are alot higher than stock seats (thickness wise, stocks are only about 1" of material) and using the stock rails, mounting at the same height, makes me sit about 1" higher than standard, which is ok for anyone up 2 bout 185 (my mate had no prob) but my knees almost hit the sterring wheel b4 i moved them back. now its all sweet
i will post some picks soon, i didnt take any during the process thou
