    Thats one of our holloween guys we sit outside. Its a pumpkin trash bag (for leaves). And then some old clothes stuffed with paper. He's been around for about three years, usually hangs out in the garage.

    The harnesses are from an ebay store, he had alot of them listed, shipping is like $15 and $6 insurance and that place is SLOW on shipping.

    How is the fit and finish? Do they seem to you like they are going to hold up?

    So far I like them but I've not been upside down in them yet! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I'm hoping to get my seat bases made this weekend and bolt them in. I'm having a confict with the seats. They have 6 small threaded holes in the bottom to mount but they (the threaded holes) just dont look sturdy enough for me. I'm about 3bills and these are going to have to be mounted a little more sturdy /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Anyone mounted sliders to there racing seats?

    Use your factory mounts. Bolt a steel plate to the factory mount and use angle iron to bolt the seat to the plate. I got the idea from Jekbrown. He has pics of the mount in his webshots /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Well, the seat base I have are rusted I wouldn't bolt them back in and modify them... besides they are selling with the factory seats...

    This is more along the lines of what I'm thinking

    THey wouldn't be fast to adjust but they are adjustable /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    search for "harnesses" not "harness" and you'll find them.

    I'm sure someone has a set of seat brackets for cheap then you will have all the adjustment of the factory seats to include the flip up passenger seat /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
