Don't know how many folks here are Solers, but I figured I'd share the writeup I did on my install of S2k seats in Sunny. I made it a PDF file so that there wouldn't be any loss of pictures like most of the write ups you see end up with over time. It's hosted on Google Docs; here's the link to it:

S2000 Seats for Your Sol

I've gotten some decent feedback from it on the Sol sites, so maybe it'll help someone here as well. There are a LOT of pictures, so it makes understanding the process a little easier for the majority of us. :yes:

Useful information. The S2k seats don't look too bad in there. But how much does a single S2000 seat cost?

It's a google docs PDF. It says it was written by NN4S. It's just a more effective way of getting all this info together cuz it's kinda long. You have to have a gmail account to look at it I think.

Look at the 3rd bullet homie.

Plus your link isn't working.
I would upload the PDF to this site, but haven't found a way to do so yet. I made the doc a PDF specifically to retain it's coherency and make it accessible to anyone (Adobe Reader is required, but it's a free download). Anyway, I'd be happy to replace the Google Docs link with the file if you can show me where to upload the PDF to this site. It's 3.15 Mb, so it's not exactly a small file as far as PDFs go... like I said, lots of pictures. If you can upload it to the site I'll be happy to email you a copy of the PDF. :bigok:

The link seems to be working fine- I checked it before & after posting, as well as from the post. You sure that your firewall's not blocking it?

Apparently it's just not working for me, which is odd cause I actually have a Gmail account and am currently logged in.

Either way, it's cool.

Nice to have another HSV guy on here.

It's a good write up; I wouldn't have offered it up if it wasn't! The offer of an emailed copy of the PDF still stands if you're interested... though I can't see you putting Sol seats into your S2k! :)

Yeah, I saw your post on HSV recommending this site... first I'd ever heard of it (at least that I remember)! My daughter's Sol (a 93 S model) has the D15B7 in it, while mine's got the D16Z6; figured I needed to be here if I'm going to keep the two of them on the road.

Cool man, this place is a WEALTH of knowledge, I hope you enjoy it. It really is a great group of guys, sometimes I have more fun on here than on HSV.

I found mine in Nashville from a guy that parted out wrecked S2000s; got the pair for $350, but that was before all of the flooding hit there (his shop was down in the warehouse district along the river). I have no idea if he's still parting them or not, but I'm certain the place he was working out of when I got them from him got flooded last year.

Yeah, the write up took a good bit longer than the install did... heck, the install took longer than it would have because because I kept stopping to take pictures. ;)

The black A pillars, top, sail trim & spoiler are all painted that way; no CF installed on her. The black goes well with the Ameripol top too, but it's really just used to let in more light during the winter- I get hot enough in the summer without the top on! :D

It's easy as pie, just edit your first post and below the reply area you'll see something called "Additional Options".

In there you are allowed to upload PDF files, using the "Manage attachments" feature.
My problem there is that it only allows a PDF of just under 20 kB and my file is over 3 megs...:TD: I'd rather it be large enough with good quality pictures to do the job than to be in small parts that could get lost, so I guess it'll just have to stay a hosted file.

Thanks; I really like the yellow myself. It stands out (a good thing for a small car) and the black trim makes it stand out even more.

I almost bought those from him. Didnt know when I was goin to be able to make the trip to get them. I emailed back and forth with him a few times and ended up having to pass on them. They look good in there. I do still plan on doing these. I have found them anywhere from the 350 to 2000 for the set.

Thanks; told you it was well done! ;) Now you see why the file had to be hosted for viewing- it's just too big to be attached. The nice thing about it is that you can print it out and it will retain the exact formatting with all of the pictures in correct sequence with the text, making following it as you do the work a simple task.

I've got Sunny in pieces right now; everything north of the block is off and scattered about the shop as I take care of the head swap / water pump / front main seal / timing belt / replacement of all coolant & heater hoses and radiator. I had to modify a tool to turn my 10mm x 1.25 tap deep enough to chase the threads in the block for the ARP studs to thread in properly, but otherwise it's all going smoothly. I'm hoping to finish putting her back together this weekend.
