Hello,
I just want to do a quick confirmation on my set up. I'm about to put two sparco sprints in my 93 NA (00820az). The set up is SEATS > RAILS > BRACKETS right? I don't need the side mount bracket things right ( SEEN HERE: http://admotorsports.net/images/00490NR.jpg ) ? Anyone have any comments on these seats in an NA? Will it interfere with the arm rests?

I did some research and all I can find is picture of sprints in NB, and an NA with not the arm rest haha.

Thank you for your input!

I have a sparco sprint installed on my 91 on a custom bracket (no slider), bottom mount, bolted to stock holes in front and to the floor on the rear. No interference with the center armrest or the armrest on the door. No side mounts were used, although I have the option available.

I have 2 sparco sprints in my -92 on stock rails. Passenger side needed no modifications, drivers side needed a simple bracket bolted to the stock rail. Seats fit perfect.

Thank you for the responses. mxclasu, are you saying for the passenger side, you just bolted the seat to the stock rails and brackets and then they're good?

I just had a quick look at my setup(well what I was able to see in the dark) and I think I had to enlarge two existing smaller holes on the passenger side, but otherwise it looks like it bolted right on the stock bracket. Tell you what, I'll take my seats out of the car tomorrow and take some pictures for you. I can take a couple of pics of how the seats fit in the car if you want?

I'm 5'11 and sprints + stock rails work for me. Would I like to sit even lower? Yes, but I need the rails because I'm not always the one driving. And I'm not saying it's too high for me, just that lower is always better. If you're 6 feet or taller I'd say forget the stock rails.

Anyway, here's what I did:

This is the drivers side rail. http://i459.photobucket.com/albums/qq320/Motot_alla/IMG_1319.jpg , http://i459.photobucket.com/albums/qq320/Motot_alla/IMG_1320.jpg This is a temporary solution though, side mounts is what I'm going to do once I have some free time. So just ignore my bracket and the bolt head between the bracket and rail, and picture a side mount bracket.

Passenger side: http://i459.photobucket.com/albums/qq320/Motot_alla/IMG_1341.jpg The bolt you can see in the picture goes through an existing hole which I had to enlarge. You just have to make sure the new larger hole is aligned properly so once the bolt is in place it won't interfere with the slider. It's easy to get it right once you start working. I don't know if there's any difference in size between sparco sprints in Europe and US, but mine are Sprint V and the mounting points on passenger side are very close to the stock seats' mounting points. Just take a quick measurement before you start. You only have to enlarge the holes in the front, in the back of the rail just use the stock ones.

So the passenger side is easy to do, but on the drivers side, side mount brackets with stock rails is what I would do. Once you have the brackets all you have to do is drill the holes to the bracket, bolt the brackets onto the stock rail and bolt the seat to the brackets. Hopefully this wasn't too confusing, mounting these seats is really easy which ever way you choose to do it.

Couple of pics how they sit in the car:

(sorry about my grammar ;))
