Well, my E36 seats showed up today, the seatbelt ringette thingy is in aswell.

I'll be working on this for most of the day and hope to update this thread with progress and pictures.

Wish me luck!

Well, took most of the day but the seats are in!

Made quite a few changes compared to that Vader guide, mostly by making 4 seperate brackets. I also utilized a different eyelette for gettting the belts attached at the bottom.

No batteries for the camera, so gonna snap some pics off tomorrow. Also if anyone is interested in this swap I now have some nice templates that I could use to make more.

Make sure you get the male end of the E36 seatbelt when you get your seats ;)

The E30 male end does not fit in the E36 buckle, and I completely forgot about it. Thankfully Bimmerparts.ca (where I got my seats from) is open on Saturdays and is overnighting me the piece for free.
