racing seats?

i know someone on here put racing seats in their fusion i was just looking for pictures to see how they look? I am kicking around the idea of some black ones to replace my oem seasts as they suck with spirited driving. I am looking to replace them with rx-8 seats so i can retain the airbag.

does anyone have pictures of a fusion with seats or know who did it? thanks

Re: racing seats?

Make sure to find out if the rx-8 seats have the same connector for the airbag and electronic controls. It'd suck to get the seats expecting it to all fit, and not have those work.

I have no Fusion. I have a Miata.

I need a new sig.

That is why I am going to transfer all the oem seat pressure plate and air bag to the rx8 seats. There are resistors that you can plug into the oem box that will trick the box to believe that the side seat airbag is still intact but i would prefer to keep it. i can modify the seats to hold the airbag and the sensors. I am not sure how they will look.

I remember that one guy put Recaro seats in his Fuze. Can't remember who though.
