Installing 1995 Civic Seats into 510


Recommended Posts

I managed to pick up a pair of 1995 Honda Civic seats for $25 on craigslist. They've got a little tear on the driver side, but for $25 (plus a little patch foam and material), I think it's a pretty good deal.





As you can see in the lower-right corner of the above photo, the Civic seats don't have studs that go down into the 510 seat brackets. You have to use nuts and bolts.





Since the Civic seat mount points aren't in the same location as the 510, you have to cut off these mount tabs and re-weld them on. Plasma cutter and welder come in handy.


Proper dimensions for 510 seat brackets:


Distance between holes, left to right: 16.25"

Distance between holes, top to bottom: 12.5"




The Civic seats have one permenant mount point, so use this one as a reference for your other ones.




As you can see in this photo, with no modifications other than relocating the mount points, the seats tilt slightly away from the transmission tunnel area. I couldn't notice it while driving, but I discovered it while taking this picture. I advise installing 1/4" shims or something to address that issue, if it's a concern.
