Newbie with KA seats

Postby Richard007 » Wed Jun 07, 2017 6:16 am

Hi I have a MM 1000 and currently fitting KA seats to I have looked at numerous topics on the subject and believe I know how I want to fit them however my 1st question to the wise is has anyone kept and fitted KA seat belts as it would male a much neater job if they fit. I will post some pic when completed seats.

Are the KA seats the same as the Puma ones?

I thought they were, in which case there are two issues,

1) Replicate the mounting for the sill mount for the belt as there is no plate to bolt down, just a stitched loop in the belt for the metal bar to go through and that bar only bolts in at one end the other slid in a hole. So it was either work out how to use that bar or make another bar that could be bolted to the sill.

2) The clip goes into the seat which seems to be why the rear corner of the seat has two bolts when the rest have one, so that area of the seat definitely needs to be very secure and the floor probably plated underneath, or at least use spreader plates not just washers on the bolts.

If you have a 2 door car then the slim pillar means you have a less than ideal upper mount too.
