Didn't feel easy whilst I was doing it, I was crapping myself I'd set the seat on fire and undo all the good work I'd done :-)

Cheers James, bloody hard work though and I bet that drivers seat is going to knock a second off the 0-60, it weighs a ton!!!!!

Finally got my drivers Recaro seat in today. As my car's a 2001 MY the carpet and underlay is a lot different to earlier cars like the Millie but I didn't want to cut it out to suit the Redaros so I decided to space the seats up by about 8mm to clear the carpet so I needed longer bolts.

Image

The shorter bolts are the standard seat mounting bolts, the longer ones are Zetec E inlet manifold bolts

Image

These are all the non standard for 2001 bits I used, including the top hats. I fastened down the top hats with the standard Puma bolts. The big nuts are the spacers I used to lift the seats but I will replace them with aluminium spacers when I can get some made up.

Image

This is one of the hatches in the 2001 carpet that doesn't match the Millie seats.

Image

This is the other hatch that doesn't fit because of the top hat and the plastic fitting to protect the top hat. This time I did put a cut in the carpet to let it lie flat behind the top hat.

Image

And here's the finished result and they are really comfy :-)

Finally finished the whole job today and it's looking good apart from the drivers side front seat back which is curiously more matt than the rest of the seats. Tony Archer reckons it will wear in to match so I hope so.

Image

The final piece of the jigsaw was the passenger side seat rail cover which Lee (the Arch Bishop ) kindly donated, thanks mate :-)

Well, that's it for this year, the car's Sorned now. Interestingly I've had an EML on for the last two weeks or so which I'm assuming was the po420 cat one but Andrew and I went out for our last ride in it yesterday and it turned itself off which it's never done before so it saved Andrew a job on Forscan.
I've got a few jobs to do on it this winter including the new wishbones I got for it (cheers Ben) and maybe having to fabricate a new cat for the exhaust but I suppose I'll be back onto the Anglia now.

Cheers Richard, I can vouch for how comfy they are but I thought you would be after some FRP Sparcos for yours.

Another little job needed doing on my Puma today as it's been nagging me for a while. My seatbelt pre-tensioner bolts weren't long enough as the captive threads on the millennium seats were inset deeper on the seat frames than the standard seats.

Image

The shanked bolt next to the pre-tensioner is the standard bolt, the longer bolt bottom right is (I think) a pre-tensioner bolt from earlier seats but I only have one. The other two longer bolts are two I bought from BAP, all of them are 10.9 tensile strength. I had some top hat spacers machined up at a local shop to match the shank on the original bolts. I also had to make a spacer washer as the round body of the pre-tensioner would press against the side of the seat without it (the aluminium thing).

Image

This shows the different lengths of bolt

Image

And this show the bolt in place with thread protruding out of the captive bolt rather than falling just short so all I need now is another earlier model pre-tensioner bolt so that's M10 button head Torx with 36mm of thread if any body has one for sale.

Hi Rob
Those might be worth a bob or two if you can find which car they're off (especially Ford) do they have eyes on the back or are they stick on?

Hi James
Would be good to have your company again but the £20 not necessary as that was for the spacers you gave me :-)

Hi Tim
Thanks for that but just check the length of thread before you pack it just to make sure its circa 36mm as that looks a little short.

Not quite 36mm, but it's close..
