I know I don't post much, but that's because my Civic is only a few months old and it's mostly stock.
but not anymore!!!!

As some of you might recall, I bought some tokico coilovers a while back.
Finally, I will get a break from school and work and install them THIS month!!!


Here are my new additions from the past month.
1. OEM strut tower bar - no ebay cheap stuff with hinges
2. OEM gsr integra shifter - I just really like the grip on it
3. OEM gsr Integra front seats!!

I got the seats for two reasons.
First - Laterial support. I'm tired of flying sideways in my car as I turn. My old Accord coupe had better seats than the silly Civic.
Two - The Civic seats make me sit too high. I'm actually too damn tall for my car and have to use the sunroof to get some extra clearance.
In addition, when I decide to have some fun and join my friends at the autocross track, I'll be able to wear a helmit and still get in the driver seat.


The dude that I bought the seats from MUMMIFIED my seats ready for BURIAL!!!! HAHAHAHA I was cracking up when the UPS guy came.



They were a little dirty, but after some cleaning, they turned out great. All the dirt came right out with some foam stuff I got at the store. (pic before the cleaning...yuck!)


BLAH! Stock seats. No support - sitting way too high!


THAT'S MUCH BETTER!!!
Check those side supports compared to the Civic passenger seat!





hope you enjoy the pics!

So you're sayin that the last pic is the new ones, and the second last is your stock seats?

The passanger side is the civic seat, the driver side is the new 'teg seat.

thanks everyone

oops...sorry
yes, the driver is the gsr seat and the passenger is the stock civic
i'm putting the other gsr seat in this weekend.


yeah, i sit pretty up right
my legs are fairly long and it pushes the seat back
i like the grab the top of the wheel with a little bend to my elbows

my boss , during his free time, is a porsche open track race instructor.
He says the best position is when you sit comfortably and be able to rest your wrist on top of the steering wheel.
That way you don't tangle yourself up when you are turning.

if you're wondering, the seats are around the same year as my car.
I figured if there is fading, the color would match up. :)
