do you think the seats off a 90 honda crx will work. found them for $30... please leme know, you guys said the imports have the front of the tracks bent a lil.. how do you work around it?
I owned an '88 CRX for 14 years. Those seats will leave you saddle sore on a long trip.

I have to re build some back stuff to make the rear seats fit,i did all this today and will work on rear this weekend. BUT it looks good and they are comfy and not to high,with power drivers side. I wanted those seat they have the intagrated seat belt one huge plus. SO I HAD to take my car on a maiden voyage today when i got my seats in,and the engine back up an runing last night, no hood,lights trim ,half in pieces yet for paint but i could not resist my new 425 Hp engine i made. i have a m21 muncie and it seem like it will be way fun .oh and i need to mount the dodge neon center councel they all look real nice togather.
i tried 1999 concorde seat no good would have to butcher the seat
I installed front & rear seats from a 1998 Sebring convertible in '04. Still in use everyday. I have gotten more compliments on my interior than anything else on the car. I still like the seats but the car corners so well now that a little more side support would be nice. (I have found myself actually sliding in the seat if I push the car into corners really hard.)

New guy here....

How exactly do you guys mount other model buckets in a 3rd gen?

Do you just line them up, make some brackets/drill holes in the floor. Bolt in and drive?

My neighbor has a 73 Nova. he has a set of New Edge Mustang seats in his car. he said they were bolt in.
