ST recaro seats in 03 svt

Was wondering if anyone has done this or if its even possible to fit some ST recaro seats into the SVT? If they will bolt right up? Or if you need to do some welding.

I dont think the rails/floor pans line up at all. So you'd need to do some fabrication work

Id like you to try though

they can't be modified to fit. I have measured both side by side in and out of both vehicles. I also measured Fiesta ST seats, Ford fusion titanium seats, and ford escape seats. mk3 ford escape seats will bolt right in, but they are a bit tall off the floor for the focus.

Why didn't the fiestaST or fusion seats fit? Were they physically too wide or the brackets just didn't line up?

Why not find a decent used set of stock SVT seats. Examples can be had from $200-$1,000 depending on overall condition and which ones they are.
