Prelude Seat Swap

I just picked up some Prelude seats and was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to swap them into my 1990 Samurai. I am sure that there are more ways than one so I want to see if everyone can agree that there is a right way and a wrong way before I start hacking brackets and drilling holes.

I hope there are some good tips out there...thanks. and cheers!

cut old mounts of prelude rails, mount up some sort of new mounts (varrying height depending on how you want to mount them), remove old mounts from samurai... place

I didn't use Honda seats but what I did for my 92 was make a large plate to go over my samurai seat rails and created new mounts for the Camaro seats I put in... here are some pics.



That isn't me... Had a helper

Thanks epic but I had a good look at everything today and decided to go ahead and give it a go since everything was held togrther by bolts and the holes were only out by a half an inch in the length and lined right up for width.

The advice is still worth a couple of frosty ones though....let me know the next time you are going wheeling and I'll see if I can catch up with ya

I always forget to take pics, but this time I remembered. Here is the process I went through. Pretty easy really. The only mod that I had to do was drill one new hole on each rail to accommodate the half inch difference in length of the mounting points on the Prelude seats.
