i bought these from Al in north carolina a while back and after getting them decided not to use them...boredom struck and here's the results...

i still have a tiny bit of detail work left to do but this is what they'll look like when finished

Esty,

Are the shells from a 3.0? If they are the fiberglass frames, how did you attach them to the 2002 frame.

i don't know for sure which series they are from but the shells are fiberglass...there's a tab on the front that i used to attach the seat bottoms to the exsisting rear seat bottom/front rail and haven't done anything with the backs...they don't move unless you try hard to tilt them forward...the center sections i made tend to hold them tightly in place

if that becomes a problem, i plan on epoxying a piece of plywood to the backs and screwing into them from inside the trunk

it's unlikely i'll ever have to fasten the backs...i have only 4 leg'd kids that won't be monkeying with the back seats...i took hubby for a spin while he sat in a rear seat...without incident

I've got the same waiting to go in my next non-touring project - came from a 3.0 Coupe, and came with a centre folding arm rest and side peices, which probably won't be needed in the narrower 02.

Are you planning on putting seatbelts in there?

no sir...no rear seatbelts..

nick, i have the center armrest too but the car's not wide enough to use it...perhaps other seats are shaped differently in the back and you can push them farther towards the outsides of the car. allowing more space between the seats but i had to make the center sections you see in mine

is that your car?...it looks really nice but...IMHO, that center piece is just too big for the dainty o2's....maybe folded up, i'd have a different opinion

still nice and i prefer that to the flat, stock rears
