    Recaro Seat Fittings?

    Can you buy recaro subframes to fit Fiesta RS Turbo seats to a MK4 Astravan, really want to change the seats to Recaros but GSI ones are expensive and the ford ones are quite cheap, has anybody done this?

    Don't think there is tailiored frames to suit, you'll have to get a "one size fits nothing" universal subframe and make it work i'm afraid.
    You could try a local scrapyard for mk4 seats to chop off the frames and make them work, a bit easier thats what I did. Although you'll also need angle iron and a welder. Bolt the scrap seats to a flat bit of ply so when u cut the seats the runners won't lose their position when your bolting on the angle iron frame then its a matter of welding on cross members for support before bolting on the seats and lastly tacking on the seatbelt tensioner cylinder.
