My exploits are posted all over this forum.

I installed seats from an Audi TT.



I made up these adaptors to fit to the original side mounts.

cwmoser and peter.k like this.

Looks like the seats fit the car nicely. Quite a contrast between the blue exterior and the bright red interior.

Car looks great. Nice list of desirable parts, especially the cat eye turn signals. What size tires do you have on the car?

I saved the seat side rails from the 1981 380SL that I parted out thinking I would someday do like you have done,

What year Audi are your seats from?
Got any more tips you can offer on doing this?

Looks great.
