Had to get the ACR a welcome home gift:

I have a second seat still in the plastic, just waiting for my brackets to get here. Trying it out on the couch it fits me PERFECT.

Awesome... that rear seat (pretty useless anyway) is going to be hard to get to with the solid backs.

I got the pair for ~$550 from www.saferacer.com. Only downside is not even a week later Joe/KB9QDI's dude put a set of brand new Sparco Fighters (fixed-back ~$1k/set) for sale for the exact same price.

Taking forever to get the brackets to mount them, I finally got a tracking # and they should finally be here Thurday at the latetst. I don't know what happened with PayPal, but it took a week for my payment tgo through grrrr.

Doubt I'll do a cage, if I thought I was going to keep the car longer it would get at least a 4-point bar. Plan is to get a 4-point harness for the drivers side, but I'm leaving the factory belts in because they're really safer on the street.

Finally got my brackets today, shoulda known better than to think they would bolt right in! If I was smart I would have bolted these brackets in before mouting the seats on them, instead of just sitting the brackets on the floor. Now I have the seats mounted to them and have been bending on the front mounts and grinding the holes out larger with my dremel. I'll have them in and pics up tomorrow.

I'm sure once I get my harness it will be used during some "spirited" street driving. :)
