Default Procar seats.

Guy wants to trade me my stock hollow spoke 14's with next to no tire left for two great condition procar by scat extreme seats..anybody have any experience with them, are they going to fit and if so will they be ok for daily driving them? seats re around 250 bucks a piece from what i can find new so not a bad deal at all if they fit and are 1/2 way comfortable.

LOL...he was trying to trade them for a set of hollows on another forum and i PMed him real quick to scoop them up before the OP in that thread could....i don't even think he knows what they are, he only knows they're procar and they're in "like new condition" but they're missing the plastic pieces that the harness goes through...trying to sell both for $100 but hey retail for like $250, hopefully they turn out decent.

I found those measurements but flyin miata says that 21" is max for shoulder width, and these are 22 3/4"....BUT they also have them listed on their list of seats know to fit, so i was just wondering what i'm going to have to trim/remove from the car or seats to get them in.

If they're too much of a pain or I just don't like them for DD use you'll be the first one to get a crack at them Scott.

Really...the back window is the "main" thing you noticed.... look a little harder, lol.

I think he said they're in an "EG civic" but I'm completely clueless about anything and everything Honda related so i dunno. does look kinda like an old school 323/626 interior though.

Well now that you mention it... can you get that color interior for a miata? Also the ebrake is a little far back to be a miata, thats not where the belts mount. And it appears to have a roof.

Nope, never came close to that color red, plus there's no "carpet" on the door panels of any miata i've ever seen (stock that is)...plus look t the door handles.

looks more like an older GM product... like a pre '95 cavalier or a pre '96 lumina.

Had to have been the easiest aftermarket seat install without aftermarket rils ever...each seat took 4 holes being drilled in the "mounting tabs" then four bolts through those holes and the holes in the stock rails...everything lines up and fit great, both seats took MAYBE a half hour-45 minutes....pretty comfortable for a fixed back too.

EDIT: I know i need to clean my car....and garage.

Not with the window....didn't think about the top, ****...guess i should check that now, they're sitting just about as low as they can w/o being bolted to the floor though so i doubt it.

Did they raise or lower the seating position, and by how much?

How comfy are they width wise?

Think they may have lowered it just a hair which i liked because even though I'm 5'10 most of my height is in my legs so i don't want to sit on the floor. I've got a 30" waist and they are a little too wide for me but I expect that with any aftermarket seat given my size.

They are procar seats made by scat from what I can find..what do you men by "two seats one car?"
