SW20 MR2 Seats -> TA22

Postby dan_ta22 » Wed Mar 27, 2013 6:29 pm

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone on this forum has ever put SW20 front seats in a ta22?

If so I would like to contact them on how they went about it as I've read people have bolted them through the floor pan?


Cheers,
Dan

Did it on the weekend.

Ill take some pictures but basically had to weld 2 pieces of 50mm angle with nuts welded on the back and drill new holes for the front mounting points.
For the rear mounting points I drew an outline and cut out pieces from 5mm flat bar and welded to the original rear mounts and bolted.

The rail mounting points are around 60mm longer and 10mm wider than standard mounts.

These mounts are by far more stronger than the standard ones that break all the time.
I dont think ive ever driven a celica that hasnt had a broken seat mount atleast once.

I dont know how people can say they bolt in.... My seats were from a JDM SW20 and are almost like new.
Got them from just wrecking toyota for $250
Nisswreck wanted $400 for a pair... :P

good price. there was another fella on this forum that had installed MR2 seats. i can't track down the thread...

i've owned two TA22's and both the seat rails were in good shape. i must not have driven hard enough or maybe i dont have enough weight in me to cause stress on them - or just lucky! who knows

This is both happy and sad news for me; I had heard that SW20 seats bolted straight in to RA23 mount points..... Nevertheless, i'll be doing this for my A22 project.
