Massive Lee E30 adapters for Recaro bottom-mount seats -- higher rake
 
Years ago, Massive Lee came out with E30 adapters for Recaro bottom-mount seats, that have a 4 deg. rake of the bottom cushion -- the front is 0.75" higher than the back:

Others have since copied his design, but the geometry and pricing are essentially the same.

I prefer my seat rake higher, same as what a factory Sport seat can be set to with a max. adjustment. That results in an 8 deg. rake, with the front of the seat 1.5" higher than the back. So I need adapters similar in design but taller in the front (1.5" instead of 0.75"), and thought others may be interested as well. Hence the feeler for this group buy.

Price is as follows:

2 sets (2 seats) -- $190 (250cad), with free shipping!
1 set (1 seat) -- $105 (140cad)


Let me know if you're interested, and whether you'd want 1 set or 2.

Hi guys.

If the GB reaches the minimum order, I'll pitch in FREE shipping on each order of two sets (one car). Also, no more sets than the ordered quantity will be produced. My shelves are already full and I don't want to increase the inventory even more. ;-)

Thanks again

Lee

I'm confused, are you producing these OP, or is Lee doing a custom run for you?

If it's Lee - I'd retitle the GB thread to attract people's attention a little more:

"Massive Lee custom run of E30 Recaro brackets with higher rake."

just a suggestion..

Lee would do a custom run if we can get to 20 sets. As you can see in post #4 above, he even offered free shipping to those ordering 2 sets.

Thanks for your suggestion, I didn't realize one could change the thread title after posting. How do you do that?

BTW, I have posted about this pretty widely -- on R3V, s14, and Bimmerforums, as well as Yahoo E30-related lists -- and have gotten folks signing up from all of them. I even posted on eBay, to catch those that are list- and forum-averse.

Come to think of it, I haven't done R3V Facebook -- that's next!

There has been a confusion until a few days back in regard of "sets".
In Massive's nomenclature, "sets" means for two seats. Therefore the GB was for 10 sets, so enough for 10 cars, or 20 seats.

My regular production is 50 sets at a time and it requires at least 5 hours of travel and back and forth in between the shop and the powder coater. Logistic is time consuming because of the heavy traffic... Therefore, making only 5 sets as was initially believed is not possible. Even 10 sets (20 seats) is a very small production, but I'll do it as the idea is worth trying. I gave the extra rake a few thoughts years ago, but as everyone seemed satisfied with the standard 4 rake, and nobody asked for more, then I left the 10 year old design as is. ;-)

E30 adapters for Recaro bottom-mount seats -- higher rake
 
Count me in for a set if we can make the magic number. Just to clarify-two sets does two seats, and is there additional shipping cost or is that price out the door?

Awesome, thanks!

In Lee's nomenclature, a set is for one car/two seats, but to avoid any confusion, I'm counting seats -- need to get to 20.

Lee was kind enough to extend the same pricing for our GB as he does for standard adapters that he makes in much larger batches. On top of that, as an incentive, he is offering free shipping to those ordering two seats.

Pricing will be 250CAD for two seats, 140CAD for one seat. Converting to USD:

2 seats: ~ $190 with free shipping
1 seat: ~ $105 plus shipping, figure $20-$25
