Best racing seats for 4th gen

I love the stock seats, they are about as close to a racing seat as you can get. I'm looking for something with good lumbar support as bolster. Something that fits inside the car well, holes for harnesses and bolt in brackets.

No matter what you get, you'll need seat rail adapters. There are no aftermarket seats that'll bolt straight in to a Prelude.

Do you happen to know where to get seat adapters?

Re: Best racing seats for 4th gen

I looked at that for mine, not a small feat but could be possible. The stock rail has a number of extra brackets to hold the back and bottom of the seat in place, as well as all the related mechanisms. I didn't think enough material would be left after cutting all that off to make a functional slider again, and would have destroyed a perfectly good seat to find out.

I got a couple of second hand Bride rails straight from Japan since postage out here from the US sucks. Plenty of websites stateside sell them reasonably cheap though. Does anyone over there use Andy's Autosport?
