Mk4 Recaros in mk2...

Postby Danieluki » Sat Mar 24, 2007 6:11 pm

Some of you have asked me about this mod , here are some pics that I could take...
This is the Mk4 seat (drivers seat)
It has Rollers instead of "sliding plastic bushes"
(Left seat is from mk3)
Image

Cut the exterior leg and put in his place a steel strut.. (Right seat in the pic)
Image

Here is a detail of the sliding plates already changed ...
Image


Image

The other leg..
Drilling the original mk2 sliding plate to fit in the mk4 axel...
I had to bent the Mk2 belt harness not to rub the seat...
Image

And the guides
Exterior...
Image

Inner..
Image

Both...
Image

This is the front support... Yes I had to cut the original.
Image

Here mounted the front carrier , and carpet trimed ...
Image

Image

I have no more pic from the process...
But I did these CAD design to help a bit...

Here is the strut in GREEN,
460mm between guides
Image

The "U" shaped strut in BLUE...
I had to cut 45º one corner to free the chassis seat.. So it could be a little shorter.
Image

And the front support plate... PINK
Image

All together...
Image

Image

Image

Image

I'm looking pics for the rear ...
Soon will be posted.. ;)
