Another major change during this particular period was stripping the interior

You may have noticed the seats have changed. Those were swapped with some Almera GTi seats that a friend and fellow Micra owner had from her project.


The front two mounting holes line up spot on. The rear outer mount requires a plate welded on and a new hole drilled. The rear inner mount uses the OEM Almera bracket which needs trimming and drilling in the centre to line up with the OEM Micra mounting hole on the transmission tunnel.

Luckily this was all done already so fitting was straight forward

I forgot how crap the DTM mirrors are for visibility (but they look cool). To help improve this a friend kindly donated a 5 panel wink mirror for the build. It takes some getting used to but its a vast improvement
