    Recaro seats

    Hi guys,

    You will be able to buy bases from Recaro. Expect them to be exxy though. @Rossco has some fitted. What did you use mate?

    Oh, and head over to the intro section and say g'day mate.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    The seats i got came with bases for a 79 series LC like these which i needed to adapt to suit the GQ. Haven't gone through ther engineering process with mine yet, although they state they have little problems when externally assesed. .

    Not sure if they do these for GQs genuine Stratos ones are over double the price of these.

    When I put the Stratos air suspension seats in mine I purchased the seats and rails from KAB, costs $'s but fully engineered and bolt straight in.

    Interestingly the rail kit supplied with the Stratos seats are Recaro rails which made sense when the KAB dudes explained that most aftermarket seats etc are made to the same common mounting dimensions and the differing vehicle mounts are adapted via the rail kit.
