Sparco base

Post by kulachd » 08 Jun 2020 19:24

Has anyone used the Sparco seat base in the 510? Trying to figure out the best seating options for 2 Sparco race seats. Just checking to see if it really is a true bolt in. Series 600

Have you (or someone) contacted Sparco and asked for an actual photo of the mounts ( L&R) for the 510 specifically?

Be good to at least see the photo of the actual unit listed fro the car as a starting spot.

curious to see how they fit in the car-- ive got 4 sparcos here and theyre quite fat on the upper portion and i am not sure if 2 will fit and not touch both each other and the doors -- (race seats)

ive got a EVOII sitting in my car right now and i need to hang the door back on to see how bad it rubs--

Cartel, here is a shot of a pair of Evo IIs mocked up in my car a while ago. Sorry about the bags...only shots I have. They are wide at the shoulders but there is enough space. You can see from the shot of my son that they just clear the door. Mounted on Sparco side mounts on a custom base. I didn't use the Sparco 510 base as I have replaced the floors and not convinced that they would have worked.
