Not the first one this thread. But here are my Recaro LS seats.

On bolt in subframes with some custom bars welded in place:

 

 

I like what i see here, are they out of a car ? or just RECARO LS seats ? I can't really find the same on the net.

They're LSB or LSC seats. Unsure on which. They were aftermarket seats for 80s cars I think. I've had these retrimmed in leather.

Has anyone had any experience with fittings any of these 2 seats in their mini?
Not overly fussed about being able to get in to the back seats, more interested in how they fit against the side pillars

Cheers.

Loving them Recaro's Richie. Is that the little pump for the Airmatic system on some Recaro's I can see?

Just picked up these Rover Coupe part leathers for a bargain £50 off Facebook marketplace. Just need a good clean and fitting. Any advice on this or links to suitable sub frames greatly appreciated.

These had three hours left on eBay so I had to get them. I wasn't looking to get the back seat too but I couldn't find just the front seats for such a cheap price so here we are. I'll try to see the fit of the rear seats, but if it doesn't work out I might try to use the leather to cover the original.

 

The project thread for my restomod is in my signature if anyone's interested in the tons I've already put into this!

They're from a 2010 Mini Cooper S Mayfair Edition. Which is pretty cool since my '84 Mini started out as a Mayfair.

 

We'll see about fitting the rear seat. If I can't mod them to fit, I'll see about reusing the material to re-cover the seat that I have.

Someone was asking if it is possible for fit BMW Mini Seats in a Classic Mini. Yes - I have done it! I have fitted a pair of John Cooper Works Seats to mine and have been very surprised. Access to the rear is easy and I can easily get into the back. Not massive amounts of legroom, but this is a Mini! And I must say that I find them VERY comfortable. Heated too!

These are the seats...

And here they are fitted...

I dont have any finalised photo's yet, but will get some to add here!

Hi, I know this was forever ago, but do you have photos of what you fabricated to fit those in there? The MINI seats I have look way different but I'm assuming they would attach in a similar fashion.

Rover 25 seats fit with a little bit of modification to the original mini seat mounts! :thumbsup:

I've just bought a mini with front seats the same as these but in a different colour.  Do you know anything more about what they're from as although I've looked up Rover 25 they don't seem to be the same as these.

 

Cheers
