My front seats are somewhat toast in my 88 Sprint Metro. Are there any other models or years where the front seats are compatible? How about a Geo Metro?? Thanks.

You referring to my Honda seats?

If so, I dont have a clue as to what seats you have seen, but these are much sturdier built and much more comfortable than any seat that was ever placed in any swift or Metro. Now sure they are not cadillac or pickup truck quality, but I used them because they easily fit plus what I stated above. As for safety compared to modern new century seats, I'd be more worried about riding around in a collapsible matchbox than what I sit in. Of course, if your going to drive this old classic gas mizer, along with any vintage vehicle, you just dont have the safety features of what modern cars provide and have accepted this fact.

The only down side to my install, I need to take more time with the mount system and lower them just a bit. Other than that, great cheap improvment.
