Samuri seats

Post by Dave_Wright » Tue Aug 29, 2017 8:32 am

Hi All,
Ive stumbled upon a 1991 Sammy, it needs a little tlc to say the least, among things that need attention are the front seats (back seat must have disappeared long ago. Basicly itlooks a good sound truck but the seats are well knackered, they are bucket seats at the mo, now me not being as nimble as I used to be think I need something more straight forward to sit in. What would be a good replacement ? I understand that the rail spacers are a odd size. I don't want to spend to much but need it comfy.

Vitara seats can be modded to fit quite easily, but whatever seats you chose they need to be quite narrow as most modern car seats are enormous by comparison.

Seats from an MX5 are a great choice, pretty supportive, and cheap. Look for the mk 2 (NB) facelift versions for most comfort.

Thanks guys, hopefully i'll be able to do a deal on getting the Sammy asap, and get to work on it as it needs a fare bit of restoration.
