Default finished my seat install today

hay i just finished installing my evo seats i picked. they weren't too hard to get in but they are a tight fit. i used the stock seat sliders with a bar going across to each slider to make them fit on the wider base of the evo seats about 2 hours for each seats. let me know what you guys and galls think.

They look to be nice seats but the quality of pictures make them look really dirty and stained imo....good job though

Definitely looks like they'd hold you in place better than the stock seats. Which year/variety of Evo are these from?

looks geart but no matter what you do thoes seat will never look "clean" in pictures..

when i was evo shopping i noticed all the interior shots with the blue seats looked like they were dirty and i guess its the fabric shine or something its reflecting some of the black...i dont remember but someone told me the reason on evom.

How do they sit, height-wise, versus stock?

Is your head higher in the car, and if so, by how much?

i got a tamiya tt01, spent way too much money on it, brushless motor, carbon chassis, spektrum remote/receiver.
what a waste of money, im afraid to drive it ever since i put the carbon chassis on it, i dont want to scratch it up.
