    Default R10 seating alternatives

    Hey guys,
    My R10s drivers seat is looking very tired, and being one of limited funds I dont want to spend heaps of cash on a retrim for it. As such I am researching as to whether anyone has ever put different seats in the front of a ten, and how the did it (keeping the original rails on the tens seats or totally changing the setup).
    I also seem to remember seeing some nice slim seats from a 12 (with the open headrests) in a 10 but dont remember where.

    If anybody has any ideas that would help or any parts for such a project they were willing to part with I have loads of spares for 10s and 16s and some stuff for 12s that I can swap.

    Default new seats for R10

    Iv'e got r12 high backs in my 10. By cutting the original brackets at the rear of the seat frames off and drilling 2 holes near these old brackets the r10 bases bolt straight on.
    Cheers Peter

    Thanks peter, a big help, i think that i have seen your modification in another car. No chance you have any high back 12 seats lying around that you are willing to part with?

    Julian,
    There is an R10 at U-Pull-it (Lonsdale) with good seats (re-trimmed)

    You also may want to check the 2 R12s there as they may have the high back seats (I didn't look at the condition)

    Both those 12's have brown high back seats, those in the orange one are usable with a few rips. Those in the white one have been well reupholstered. Also the white Virage has an A/C unit, that'd be a fun addition in an R10! :-)

    Julian,

    I have a set of grey cloth Virage seats for your R10 if you are interested, I`ve sent you a PM.
