fitting alfa seats in ep82 or other cars

Post by Guest on Mon Jul 08, 2013 5:19 am

BEFORE U START MAKE SURE UR CAR IS PARKED LEVEL IF NOT USE A LEVEL AND JACK 1 SIDE UP OF THE CAR TILL ITS LEVEL 

hey lads this is a how to  ,  to fit bucket seats or like me alfa 156 leather interior in your car 
first i used the 4 oem mounting brackets from the seats and cut of the rails  
then got 40/10mil bar  upfront and bolted the bar across 
then i did the same at the rears BUT  because the alfa driver seat has the yoke under it for the seat hight adjustability  i had to cut the mid section out at the rears  as u can see in the pic below    if u are using bucket seats u wont have to cut out the mid section 

on some cars u can keep the rear cross bar u will have to check when doing so 



and dont make the same mistake like me NOT USING a spririt level and making sure ur car is parked level  i had to do it all over again ha ha ha


here is a pic of driver seat FINALLY  in perfect position  




i will make more detailed pictures 2morow from passo seat   and tools to use 

and after that i will fit the alfa leathers in the rears to going to be a real hard pain  there way to big 

to be continued


---------------------------------------------------

so here is the description of fitting the alfa seat level  ( passo seat ) in ep82 



for most cars u will keep the 4 oem mounting points  and wil end up whit something like this 



now back to fitting the alfa seats in a ep82!!!!!!

now u have to drill a hole in the chassis mounting point  i used a 9 mm drill for the M8 bolt to have some play to manoeuvre  ( to get the lowest seat position possible )  u will need it trust me 



next u will have to drill out a hole for the rail bolt  going thru the cross barr 



now use this hole u made for the rail bolt / cross bar  to fit the mounting bolt thru the  9mm hole u drilled 

(  PICTURE TO COME )

 this is bolted down ( on the inside ) use 2 deep sockets ( from the same set so there equal in length ) 
and place them as far to the edge as possible 



now place ur level ontop of the sockets to check level and adjust outside mounting points till level 



1s u have ur base level now its time to fit the sliders   bolt ur rails back onto ur seats / buckets and fit ontop off ur rails  now 1s u get ur final position mark it accordingly   and drill the holes and bolt ur railt to the cross bars 

next check squareness of ur rails first check the top iner dimensions of ur rails 



then check the bottom inner  ( using a measuring tape by the way ha ha) 

and after u did that measure top left rail bolt to bottom tight bolt and visa versa  to get the rail square bolt it down sollid then unbolt the mounting point then fit back to ur seats  and fit seats to car 

tools used so far is 

1: drill / 9MM bitt 
2: angle grinder
3: 10/40 mm bar
4: ratchet spanner 13 
5: ratched 14 
6: level 
7: 2 equal length sockets 


PHASE 2  REAR SEATS COMING SOON

today i made the rear bottom seat fit  it was easy as  but the back rest will be a whole other story  

tools used today 

1: mig welder 
2: hack saw 
3: 2x long nose pliers 
4:  a length off 3mm round bar

so here we go   

1st put the alfa seat on the floor with the bottom facing up   then the gt seat ontop bottom facing down  
now make sure u centre it ( IF U MAKE A MISTAKE NOW U WILL HAVE A CROOKED SEAT)
use a red marker ( or any color u fancy) its up to u  mark the gt seat on the back of the alfa foam 



now all that is marked use ur long nose pliers and loosen the clips al round



now pull back the leather and cut the excess off the metal black bars off  now whit the scrap bars bend them to the shape of ur markings then weld back on  it will look something like this 



now cut ur foam whit a hacksaw to the shape of ur new design  



( yes sorry lads i missed a step in the pictures but u still get the point)

now refit all the clips and tighten the 2 metal bars that are soan in the alfa leathers  and tighten as much as possible 
like this 



to be updated 2morow lads ran out of light

fore sure have them reers ere already been cleaning them and taking measurements etc 

i am going to have to use the mid centre section of the alfa back and cut to size and weld on the starlet rail  and loads of trimming   

i will deffo take my time doing so i have only 1 go so measure measure and measure again  then cut and weld  test fit the naked hybrid rear seat back frame   then start trimming the alfa foam to suit the new frame then trim the leather to suit  the good part is in the middle there is an arm rest coming down so when theres only 2 in the rear they can hang in comforf 

i think i will need about 7 days to trim the lot so be patient   
updates will come Very Happy bounce
