Love the seat idea! Can you post more picts of the interior?

Can you explain more detail on the process? What do you mean by rivet.....Can it be done on power seat? If yes, I will definitely upgrade to the RX8 seat..............

Hello 'On Sale',
Please take a look on that picture from the bottom of the rails:

You can see there are 2 rivets/clinches for each seat arch. On the RX8 seat you need to remove the arches from the rails as on the picture and also remove the remains of the clinches. When you remove the clinches completely you will have 2 OEM wholes for each arch. Do the same for MX6 rails but from them you need to keep the arches! The OEM wholes of MX6 arches fits perfectly to the wholes of RX8 rails :tup:
In our case we used welding to attach the arches to the rails but we align them using the OEM wholes on the arches and rails. You can also use stud and nut or again clinch in the OEM wholes but we decide that it will be more reliable if we weld it down :)
Not sure if you know... but RX8 seats are not both powered. Only the driver seat is powered and not the passenger :) I take 12V power from the lighter and my power seat works great :)

p.s. As I bought the seats from UK they have right hand drive and now the power seat is the passenger one... my girlfriend really like it :tup:
