only easy change is with seats from another 107 car!. I have seen a write up on a swap with a hyundai seat with just minor modifications and i have just bought some 98 jaguar xj8 seats to put in mine. I will take pictures over the next few weeks and let you know how it goes.
cheers

they were out of a 2005 tiburon. I have the doc file with pics of how they did the changes but its too big to post here if you email me off line with your email address I can send you the file. its not got great info but at least you can see how they did it. I just can't credit whoever did the work as I have lost the thread. all i have now is the doc file
cheers
Barri
