View Full Version : woes in 7th gen seat upgrade

04-19-2008, 04:28 AM
So I recently purchased black leather 7th gen seats to put in my celica. I got a great deal for it, or so I thought at the time. I bought them for 200 dollars locally. Before I went to get them, I asked if there were any problems and even asked if the brackets were modified at all. The guy said everything is fine, no mods were done.

Well, I went to try and fit them up tonight and I took a look at the mounts and I see that other brackets were welded onto the stock bracket and the stock mounting points were cut off. D'oh!

Now I have to cut off the welded on brackets and replace them. I'm thinking of getting a 1" flat bar and welding them along the seats bracket. Anybody have any other suggestions??
