Inspect and Prep like a Pro
Now it’s time to give your new seat the once-over. Inspect it for any damage or defects—no scratches allowed! Check the padding, frame, and upholstery to make sure they’re in top-notch condition. Give your seat a good cleaning to ensure it’s ready to take on all the dirt and grit of your high-speed adventures.
Gear Up with the Right Tools
You wouldn’t tackle a race without the right gear, would you? Gather all the tools and equipment you’ll need for the installation. From socket sets to torque wrenches and screwdrivers, make sure your toolbox is fully equipped. It’s time to show those bolts who’s boss!
Fine-Tune Your Seat Positioning
Your comfort and control depend on the perfect seat positioning. Take a moment to adjust the seat’s recline, height, and distance from the steering wheel and pedals. Find that sweet spot where you feel like you’re one with your machine. Need some expert advice? Reach out to seasoned gearheads for tips on getting the ultimate driving position.

The Race Seat Installation “Don’ts”
No Burnouts – Don’t Rush the Installation
Hey, we get it – patience is hard when you’re itching to hit the road. But installing a Status Racing seat requires precision. Don’t rush through the process. Take your time and pay attention to every step. It’s better to spend a little extra time upfront than to end up with a wonky seat that rattles on every turn.
No Hacks – Don’t Mess with the Seat or Your Ride
Resist the temptation to MacGyver your way through the installation. Avoid modifying the seat or your vehicle to make things fit. It’s like trying to squeeze into your little brother’s jeans – it won’t end well. Stick to the seat and vehicle specifications, preserving both safety and style.
Check Your Blind Spots – Don’t Forget About Safety
Remember, safety comes first. Don’t overlook the safety regulations and legal requirements in your area when installing an aftermarket seat. Make sure you’re compliant with the rules of the road. Strap yourself in with proper harnesses or seatbelts. Safe driving is cool driving.
Keep It Fresh – Don’t Neglect Seat Maintenance
Your seat deserves some love too. Keep it looking and performing at its best with regular maintenance. Clean it! – no crumbs from last week’s drive-thru adventures allowed! Periodically check for wear or damage and address any issues. A well-maintained seat is a seat that will keep you comfortable and safe for miles to come.
Get the Right Mounts and Sliders – Don’t Forget the Essentials
To complete your installation, make sure you have the necessary mounts and sliders. While Status Racing offers side mounts that you can buy separately to attach your seats, you’ll also need to source vehicle-specific mounts and sliders from an external company. These added parts ensure a proper fit and compatibility with your specific vehicle model. Don’t overlook this step to secure a functional seat installation!
You’re now a certified seat installation pro! Prioritize safety, take your time, and keep that seat in top shape. Happy installing!
