    Recaro Seat Runners/Risers

    Hello, Iím looking to fit a set of fiesta rst seats I have to my mk2 escort and believe with the mk2 recaro seat risers/runners/sliders (maybe Capri versions fit as well?) itíll be a straight fit. Appreciate they are probably rare enough now but if you donít ask you donít get. Thank in advance

    Hi, are you after the runner and the riser bracket or just the riser ? You’re right the risers don’t come up very often and when they do the price people want is sky high.
    The risers are fairly straightforward in construction. I’ve a set, not selling as they are for my car, but can take photos and measurements for you so yo make your own provided you have access to welding equipment.
    Let me know

    Thanks Zakspeed. Iím ideally after the runner and the riser I think. Basically I have the standard 1600 sport seats and their runners and I have a set of the fiesta recaros with no runners on them. Do you think I could cobble together something using the standard runners? Pictures/ measurements would be really helpful if you could. Thanks very much

    Hi Danny, you’re half way there already, the runners are all the same, so you just need the make up a bracket to fit the seats to the runners.
    I’ll dig my brackets out of storage later and measure them for you. Do you have welding kit available?

    They really aren't that complicated - minimal welding required - you need, 1" MS angle, hacksaw, grinder, vise, M8 nuts and fluxcore MIG - and an original for a pattern of course!
