Feb-2013 : Just fitted a new SPARCO race seat. Fitment required removal of the original cross brace that the standard seats bolted to and some panel beating of the gearbox tunnel. The mounting brackets and floor washers are all made from high grade aluminium.
The seat is bit too wide and the right shoulder support hit the door panel. This was easily fixed buy heating up the back of the door panel using a heat gun and reshaping the door panel to get more clearance.
Jan-2014 : In preparation for fitting a roll cage the seat had to be lowered. This required removal of the original floor mounts so the seat runners could be bolted directly on to the floor. The after market seat runners had failed after 12 months and finding a good set of low profile seat runners suitable for a race seat is not easy. I ended up with a set of seat runners from a Hyundai Elantra which are only 20 mm high and have locking mechanisms in both rails.
