How to mount aluminum race seat with sliders??
I tried searching the web but had no luck finding any answers on my question:
Is it possible to mount an aluminum race seat (Kirkey or Ultrashield) using the stock mustang seat bracket/slider? I want to be able to move my seat forward/backward because it is still a street car and other people sometimes drive the car. I am also not a fabricator (no welder) so I can't easily fab some custom mounts.
Being that aluminum seats can either be side or bottom mounted (matter of just drilling some holes), would it be possible to attach a stock manual seat bracket/slider to the bottom of the seat?
My idea is to just align the stock bracket/slider to the bottom of the seat, drill holes in the seat that will allow me to bolt the seat to the bracket/slider, and then mount that directly to the floor. Although I'm not too concerned about height, my idea was to save cost on buying aftermarket sliders (ie: Sparco), a mustang-specific mounting bracket (ie: Sparco, corbeau, etc), and aluminum side mounts.
If anyone has done this before, please chime in and let me know how you did it! I'm getting ready to order an Ultrashield Rally Sport seat but want to make sure I can easily mount it into the car before taking the dive.
