Go on Ebay and look up both CB seat brackets and BB brackets. Save those images on your computer and compare them.

Seems Raf99 did this swap. Its mentioned in his MRT. Maybe he chime in if you still have questions

Ya, i really should redo the DIY, just not a lot of folks doing it anymore. But I've done the 97 seats with accord rails and also the 92 seats with prelude rails. I even went and addressed the "tilted too far back" issue with the last set of seats. Ask away man.

The first set simply took some mods to get them on the accord rails. But as many will quickly realize they are leaning back too far. Fine if that's how you ride, but this is as far up as they will go.



The next set i wanted a better job. They looked like this:


Electrolysis the rails and paint them:


Address the "too far back" issue and when test fitted looked like this:

So how did you fix the "too far back" problem. I can get the seats from a 92 lude and I'm trying to do the same thing. I really want the rsx seats but I haven't came across any yet but at least this swap will get me familiar with all the hardware

That looks great.

Mine weren't awful as far as tilt, but I would have loved them to sit a bit more upright. Would love to see how you did them. I did my self almost 10 years ago before anyone had really done the swap, so I did what I could back then. I feel like now if I were to do it, I'd think through it way differently.

On the side of the seat that has the metal arm going up into the backrest portion of the seat you are leaving the top bolt/hole as is and drilling the bottom hole towards the front (drivers seat) to tilt the backrest section of the seat forward more. But by doing this you will have created a slant or uneven angle across the horizontal spot where the butt cushion and backrest section meet. This is where this bracket comes into play for the other side.



I started with a fab piece, and then made a stronger thicker piece. Then simply make a pivot point with some bearings and longer bolts and you will have them made both sites at the same pivot point.



I summed it up in another part of my MRT as:
- No matter what rails you use (accord or prelude) you have to shim them so they are wide enough to use the car body bolt holes
- By doing this the back portion of the seat metal bars coming down have to be bent to attach to the same two rails on each side |_| . or its a tight fit
- The seat will be slanted a bit from using the accord rails (I read the fix for this is to use the prelude rails)
- The seat will be a low rider stance; lean far back _/ (The fix for this is to drill another hole on the side bracket of the recliner section. )
- But the other side (pic below) is being bent out, needs to be back 1" or the back recliner portion will be crooked on a weird angle

It's important to get the holes setup properly so the space between the seat and the back seat is equal across.



make sense now?

hey guys, thank you so much for the help, but while i was away from the internet i decided to just get hands on and just go for it with and extra set of cb7 rails i had and i got the 4th gen prelude seats firmly, securely, and snug into my cb7, they tilted inward at first but with a custom spacer where the rail attaches to the seat and a longer bolt of the same thread pitch they fit remarkably!
