90 D21 Seat replacement
 
Hello,
I have a 1990 Nissan D21 King cab with two bucket seats that are totally shot. I have taken one of the seats apart and have been looking for replacement foam all over the internet with no luck. Does anyone know of a supplier.
I've also been considering buying a sheet of high density foam and attempting to contour it myself. Has anyone done this or have any other suggestions for alternatives?

Thanks,
Warren.

take it to an interior shop. rebuilding a seat is childs play to them and fast.

there is probably a fabric shop, I think its called Fabric world (in phx anyway) they have fabric for clothes, boats, cars etc and foam..

I agree,between hog rings, contouring the foam stretching the material it would be easier to just go to a shop. On the other hand why not just find a good pair at a pick-a-part. It sure would be cheaper.
A few years ago I had the seats for a 1970 Dodge Challenger Reupholstered. I supplied the foam and the covers. The cost for that was $500 ( it was leather)
to reupholster them 2 buckets and the backseat was $350.
Gonna be a whole lot cheaper to find a good set out in the yard.

I too have a '90 king cab, and my seats look practically new with 215k on the odo. Amazing, really! But I'd like to replace them with a more comfortable seat, and one with more side bolstering. Speaking of junk yards, what have people replaced the OEM seats with, other than new originals?

For drop-in I think the earlier Pathfinder seats have more bolstering than the later ones.

Seats from the late-90s Sentra-based 200SX and Z32 300ZX look like they may bolt in w/o mods, but I'm not positive.

I have 94-95 Pathfinder seats in my truck and would like a lower seat, but I'll probably just live with them since I plan to install matching door panels to do pw/pl swap.

I just picked up a pair of Rx7 Fc seats. Dont have them in yet, but it looks pretty simple.

Lots of bolster, as they are basicly the Jap rep. of the old recaros.

Got them for 50 bucks which was a steal! Theres 1 listed on ebay for 300.00!

:woot:

Those RX7 seats are sweet! I'd love to put something like that in, but I doubt I can count on being that lucky. FCs aren't often in the junk yard at all, and when you add the odds of getting a good color in good shape, the odds nearly hit zero. There is an older Pathfinder in the yard right now, and I do like those seats. They are grey like my interior, and in decent shape! I may need to snag them.

they look similar to the Prelude seats I had in my 720 way back when.

heywier427 02-01-2018 01:52 AM

I have q45 seats in my 720 now :)
