Got Sparco?

I do!! Hahahhah... Yup, just picked up a pair of red Torino. Took me about two hours to get them installed because I had no freakin' idea how to do it. It is really not that hard once I got one of them on. So, if anyone needs help installing seats, feel free to contact me. However, I don't do bracket modifications. Yup, even the Sparco brackets need to be modified before they will fit.

At any rate, I am so stoke. Will have pics up as soon as I can. I am gonna go out and take a drive now. Woohoo... thumbsup

Holy cow! I would have killed you. Hahahhahah... j/k. grin Yeah, these seats are great. I love them. It takes a bit of getting used to though. It feels stiffer than stock. If you have a big waist, than these are not for you because it is tight around the waist. But, for a skinny dude like me. It is perfect. hahahahhah...

Oh Steve, i will get pics up soon.

I am sure it will. Check out Isaac's post on how to built a winning show car. It gives all the breakdown.

To get more points you have to get Bride seats, they are JDM seats and they get more points because it is harder to get.
hmmm... asking about getting more points for shows, do I see a future show car in progress??
Hope you have as much fun building your showcar as I do.

Mike had plenty of chances to take pics of the seats but he didn't. frown So, no pics yet. I guess I will invest in a digital camera next.

Is the race car on that www.turboperformance.com website? I saw a racecar they put there and I think it said it was yours. Since you have experience with them are they as good as they claims? If you were not keeping your celica N/A and wants turbocharged would you bring it to them to have it turbo charged?
