Hi new to the site so bear with me, has anyone got any pic's of EP3 seats that have been modified to fit EK/simelar?
Me and a friend welded the brackets on from my original EK3 seats to the EP3 rails, however the seats arn't sat level. Was after any pics anyone could kindly provide :) of runners with modified or custom fabricated brackets on them, was thinkin of taking the seats to a specialist fabricator and having custom brackets made and fitted but could do with photos to describe exactly what i want. Any help would be greatly appreciated, my e-mail is [email protected].
Cheers ;)

cool they look really good. How did u mount them tho? did you use brackets from ur old seats or make new ones? cos i know they dont bolt straight in, like i say, iv welded brackets onto the EP rails from my original seats, but this sits the seats away from each other towards the doors. cant decide wether to try an cut an re-weld the brackets or start again with custom made ones...
was after pics of how people had done brackets cos had the seats in 6 months now an its time to sort them... Cheers ;)

iv just got them on their standard rails, only in by 3 bolts atm :redface: its still sturdy enough though
hopefully next weekend gonna get the two back inner bolts bolted in too, all 3 line up sweet its just the two back inners are about 10mm out, you could solve this by drilling through the bracket and it would fit fine
mine were in an eg civic before though, so holes were drilled about 20mm back already, so if i were to drill holes i would end up drilling clean between the two holes and the bolt would slide between both holes anyways!! so just gonna cut the bracket off and remove about 10mm and weld it back on so it can sit in the original ep3 holes!!

wouldnt mind trying to get it onto the old frames though as the ep3 brackets make the car sit higher up, being 6 ft 3 lol i find the standard ek seats alot more comfier with a better ride position

Oh right. Well when i came to fit mine i never thought about checking forums first, i took one look an decided that easiest way would be to cut off the brackets on the EP seats an weld on brackets from standard seats. This sort of worked but like i mentioned before, the seats dont sit level and they do sit high in the car. Think the only real fix is making brackets from scratch, found a bloke on some site a while ago who had posted really good pics of him making brackets an welding them on, searched for it again recently to use the pics an cant find them anywhere which is really annoying!!
Wanted to use the pics to take to a fabricator and show them so they would know what i was after... thats how iv ended up here looking for pics of custom brackets :mrgreen:

ah kk!! nah i think im one of the very few on here with ep3 seats in their ek's. definately wanna get mine to sit a bit lower so might hunt round a bit n see if there is anyway to lower it!!
a m8 had the black ones in his vti, i kept askin bout checkin out his rails to see what he had done as they seemed to sit nicely, never got round to it though

cool. Well when i get round to getting my car to a fabricator (got a broken leg with 6 rings round it atm...) i will get some pics posted an perhaps try an put a guide together. Would be so much easier if i could weld, must be one of few mechanics who cant.. :redface:
cheers for your input tho josh, appreciate it ;)
