Need help putting them in tried putting the seats in with the frames, rails and original seat carrier but they hit the roof of the punto and cant recline. Sure am doing it wrong. Anyone know where to get a lower seat carrier? The seats are omp design 2 seats and using sparco rails and frames.

do them frames look like there the wrong ones for seats with side mounts instead?

looks like the seats are too tall for the car, that can be the case with a lot of aftermarket seats., where they supposed to be for a punto?

how far is the shop from you?

I'd go and ask them for advice if they know how to fit them.

Looks to me though like you have brackets to fit a side mounting seat with a seat which has threads in the bottom.

Do you need the sparco adapters? Looks like the seats may bolt to the standard subframe.

Like I say though, Murray Motorsport appear to be the experts and they should give some free advice, a lot better than we can give without the car being in front of us.

I think theres some red left over from a BMW the lads in the crash repairs where working on so could use that? its kinda ferrari redish lookin.,lol.,
just saying coz its not cheap for the colour match.,(y)

Edit: isnt your car really light blue?.,
EDIT again, just noticed its a GT so have a new one then, PM me and ill sort the dash thing for ya.,(y)
