alright fellahs,

before the wierd questions as to why i'd put luxury car seats in the prelude, read here for my overall goals on my car:
In this thread I will discuss my plans hopes and dreams for resto-moding my Prelude--


The TL/CL seats are actually quite sporty and very comfortable...

I want to put them into my Prelude. I've never retrofited seats before. I'm going to ask the acura zine crew for dimensions before I start sourcing a set.

I know that anything can be done with time patience (and money) but I want to now specifically what dimensions I will need to see if I can get these seats to fit in my Prelude...

I would assume seat width, and probably overall height from what though? rails to top of the seat? i guess width betweent he rails? any ideas? I've nver done this before...

pic of the seats I'm looking into:

You pretty much got it.
I'm pretty sure they're going to be too wide though.

Basically I'd measure from the floor to the top of the seat, width of the seat overall, and see about a custom seat bracket if its determined that the seats will actually fit in the car.
There may be more, but that's a place to start before spending any money.

may have to go with 1st gen TSX seats. we'll see how it works out... The TSX's seats aren't as sporty looking as the TL/CL's

I think the TSX seats will make the driving position a lot higher in a 4th gen Lude...


...TSX seats are pretty comfy

yea i had a TSX before my S2000, that I used althrough college, I put 92k on it in just over 3 years... lol drove the **** outta that thing (hwy miles)

2 trips to NY countless round trips from tampa to orlando to deland (daytona) to fort lauderdale and back I75 back to tampa.
it was VERY comfortable.


this little setup kept me entertained on the longer rides:




higher position maybe but people modify S2000 rails all the time to sit lower (i guess for the taller folk) so i'ms ure the same thing can be done for the TSX seats to fit nicely in the Prelude.

I traded that TSX in for my S2000, but yes they were OEM Fog lights w/Nokyo Yellow Bulbs.

I had 19" Moda R6's (they're now on my roomate's Mazda6)
Eibach Pro Kits (and rear camber kit)
Acura OEM underbody kit.

Noice.


TSX seats are comfy but TL seats are higher quality of leather. Have you thought about 2nd gen TL seats? they are very, very plush and may work...

2nd gen tL seats are exactly what I'm looking at.
