You first mock up the seat into position with 2x4 wood blocks then determine either floor mount or seat track mount.

The rest will be detailed in diagrams and pictures but, experience in welding is a must.
With the work needed to build ,I guess the mounting frame, or whatever, is your seat considered a "kit" seat, and not a "real" seat ?

Just like the originals

Same need to be handy in creating a mount for them.

At least they went in 1 brand of car, Shelby where the mounting position holes were in the same spot all the time.

With all the kit cars out there, it's easier to get a "hole in one" on a par 5 than it would be to make a mount to work in a car long distance.

And.., these were comp seats used in comp cars installed at Shelby American in their cars. Not for the average street driver or trailer queen guy. Comp cars were owned by guys who worked on their cars.
This was a no brainer to install then and the same goes for now.

Bring me the car and I will mount it in any kit car you want, Sonny boy.

The guys like Cobra Restorers that sell the exact copy of the original Shell in fiberglass like the original don't sell a mount for it either.
Why?

No mounting bracket needed.
Set the seat where you want it and drill 4 holes down through the seat( with out the cover on), Raise the front of the seat with 1" square tube.
Install 5/16" carrage bolts with fender washers and nuts to the seat. Put cover on.
Install in car and bolt in.
If the rear of the seat is not stable to the floor pan you can attach a piece of 1/4"x 1 1/2" flat steel to the rear bolts and extended out from the underside of the seat a coulple of inches on each side ,but not wider the the total width of the seat, to make a flat service against the floor pan.

Make it all look nice

1 1/2 hours no welding

If you want to use your existing holes for the seat it will take a little longer.

no pics. Steve won't send me a seat.

He will gladly if "Steve" gets paid.

You got other "Sponsors"?

What was you last years purse?

What % of "New Business" did your sponsors receive as a result of their sponsoring you and your car?

Have you approached Carroll Shelby to sponsor you?

No sense of humor or you just don't think that I'm funny?

Watch what you say, you are only a half day drive from me.

Morris,
Can you post some more pics of the "legs" it appears that you welded to the bottom of your seat? particularly want to see what you did in the back.

I have a MIG welder still in the box that I've been intending to learn how to use. The seat install is now the rationale for doing that. Any tips for a first timer welder and for welding aluminum?
Thanks!
Scott

I'll take some photo's and get back to you guy's.....

I'm surprised that Steve didn't offer to fix my seat cover......

To each his own........

We are also going to have to modify the seat...because it doesn't hold you in the seat on a Track......
