I've been asked a lot how I put these in so I figured I'd just write up a thread.

To do this you will need stock 6th gen seats from 96+ or newer.

These are 94 seats:


notice the plastic trim that goes all the way down the side... now these are newer 6th gen seats



hard to tell, but notice the plastic trim is different. So are the seat pans and rails and that's what we need.

Below: 94 seat rails on top and 7th gen on bottom.. again 94 rails will not work


Steps

-Unbolt the bottom seat cushion from the rails (this makes it easier to remove the plastic trim)



-Remove the plastic trim from both seats

-Remove the back cushion from the seat rails (4x 14mm bolts on the end of the rails)




-Take the bottom seat cushion for both 6th and 7th and remove the upholstery





-Transfer the seat foam and upholstery from the 7th gen seat to the seat pan of the 6th gen seat (lines up fairly well, use some zip ties to assist)

-Bolt the back cushion of the 7th gen seat to the seat rails for the 6th gen (direct fit)



-Reinstall the bottom seat cushion to the 6th gen seat rails(6th gen seat pan/ 7th gen foam and upholstery)



And you're done!
If you happen to find 7th gen leather seats that match the leather you already have, you can literally just swap over the rear seat cushion with four bolts if you prefer. The bottom seat cushions look very similar.


(I'll be adding some pics when I find them and cleaning this thread up a bit)

Of course I have 95 seats. So I have to buy 96+ seats just to turn around and buy the 2000+ seats. No welder, and too lazy for that. tongue.gif

I'm not 100% if 95 seats are the same as 94's or 96's, the plastic will tell you the difference, or the handle to slide forward and back.

I was able to find seats rails, the plastics and the seat pans cheap from a member on here

They're the same. The car came with a 96+ bottom cushion foam to replace one that was in the car. Way different, the 96+ foam wouldn't fit down onto the 95 pan. Would like to have the 7GC or MR2 seats. Maybe the older MR2 seats will work with the 94-95 rails, being from the same time period and what not.

I like the MR2-S seats, just run into the same problems as the 7GC seats. That and they're pricey, at least the ones I've found.

The handle to slide from 96+ is different from 94-95.

I don't think I'd trust $140 seats with my life in an accident, I have seen some GNARLY pictures floating around the internet of what happens to those seats and those who were sitting in them. Basically, if you buy them I hope you like wheel chairs.
