Hi , I have got the restored seat for my early Z from Mr Sudo .
The seat formes and basements are originally used for my 03/70 blue 240Z , this time I have got these seats restored.
( the blue seats are now on my blue 240Z were restored by Mr Sudo too , in 2003 , using a donor seats which came from another z ) .
I am so happy with the results, I really love early “ fat “ style seat back .
Seat belt hook located Fairlady version , it is on the head rest , all the export Datsun version has near the lumbar support.
I guess this difference would come from the seatbelt length. Fairlady cars can set the seat much forward than Datsun , designers considered small women behind the wheel . ( only very few women in Japan though)
The seat belt must be longer, then when you hook the belt, the hook should be on higher to prevent jamming excess belts on the sliding rails .
But early seat has four holes on the back , ( for L & R , Fairlady and Datsun ) which makes factory efficient when making it .
And I chose upgrading belts for the seat bottom as I have back pain usually. I do not stick with its original for the seats this time , I took off original 432 seats for preservation , they will be restored using original belts .
