CA RX8 seats into an RX3

Is there any aftermarket brackets ( from who ) I can get to fit rx8 seats to an rx3, or do I need to find a fabricator? Has anyone done this?

Easier to fabricate since u need to find the right height to your liking. Im not familiar with Rx-8 seats but its best to test fit the stock rx3 rails first.

Yes, will be sure to allow myself to see over the steering wheel :-) I am looking for someone who is familiar with the RX8 seats who has successfully installed them into an RX3. As I am not a fabricator myself, it would be nice to know who is in LA and who can offer advise as to the best way to install?

I dont like the idea of drilling holes in my cars so I fabricated a rail using a flat car and my el cheapo mig welder. This is where the recaro seat/slider are bolted to.

Lmk if i can help. Just bring the seat over and we will test fit in my RX-3. I should have some free time after 6/1 but you need to bring some brewsky lol

Tinkering around and it does not look as straight forward as anticipated. Hopefully someone who has done this can comment :-)
