I wanted the PPs for the longest time after sitting in a Porsche GT3 six years ago. Finally found the PP with the perfect material (red, jersey, and alcantara) from GT Motoring, Tim. I wanted to thank Tim for following up with me and great communication despite some bad reviews.
Anyhow I wanted to write up a DYI for S2000 because none of existing ones tell you what exactly you need.
First, you need an S2000
And a Recaro seat
And a BC rail
And seat belt extension: http://www.4extender.com/
And 4 size M8 bolts. You need to buy these extra since these aren't supplied. Also don't forget 2 washers.
You need one of these star shaped head for the air bag sensor removal from under the OEM seat
Now just to verify the authenticity
I put some painters tape around the holes to protect the seat
Take out the original seat by unscrewing 4 bolts.
Make sure you Unplug the seat belt sensor and air bag sensor before taking it out all the way.
Take out the air bag sensor from the OEM seat and plug it back in and leave it on the floor.
It's the one on the left side in this picture. Don't pay attention to the seat belt receiver in this picture as I put it on the BC rail.
Mount the BC rail like below. Notice how I ran the seat belt extension on the side. It brings the seat belt receiver all the way through the hole and be in a perfect position.
Now is the hard part. Aligning the seat into place. I must have took out the seat like 20 times to adjust the BC mounts to fit the holes on the floor. Once you finally align it correctly, unscrew the bottom seat belt screw and run it through the left side hole on the seat
And then screw it back in.
Don't forget to plug in the 2 connectors. Seat belt sensor and air bag sensor.
I used a towel to protect the back of the seat
A wrench extension was very helpful
Use the 2 washers for 2 front bolts since BC has large holes
Rear ones are ok with using existing bolts.
And... You are done.
