Recaro Compar-o

Pulled the Recaros out for the rebuild and reupholster work and put in a tired pair of seats from a '74.  The seats pictured are both the passenger side and are both sitting on their slides.

The Recaros are attached to plate brackets from Massive which reclaim about 8/10 of inch of height compared to the 320 rails.  


Sitting on the stock seats, you do sit slightly lower than the Recaros.  Although the pictures would appear to show the Recaros are lower.


I will be photographing the repairs and process for an article to add.  Driver's seat is a bit twisted.  Plan to repair the drivers and do similar reinforcement on the back of the passenger.  New bottom straps, hooks and seat back cables from Aardvarc.  New foam cushions from TMI (a Mustang source) as the 320i and the Mustang both offered the Recaro ST seats.

The seat model appears to be from Recaro literature an LXC, LX seat back and a C bottom with a movable knee bolster.
