That means I'll have ---------7" extra. lol I've been looking at them for a few (sad to say) years, but was worried about installing them.
Did you guys mark down any drawings or measurements for what you built to mount them?? They look great by the way!
If that's the case you'll have plenty of room.......lucky you.
I didn't make any drawings or take measurements, another member here was nice enough to lend a helping hand a couple of times winging it, welding it as we went along.
We had to re-mount the LS pedestals inboard that join to the tracks on the passenger seat and the RS pedestals on the drivers seat.
3/16" x 1.5" flat stock was used to tie the existing tracks together and have somewhere to drill & mount the seats to the stock mounting location.
New seat adjustment front levers were also fabbed out of 1/4" round bar.
Keep in mind that these seats are manually operated and had to switch drivers to passengers and vice versa.
I might have a pic of the welded seat bottom work somewhere and send you a pic.
Quite a bit of work but the end result I think is worth it for this quality of seat for the time being.
