You must be kidding - you are not holding yourself with a 4-point harness and your seat with those flimsy brackets...

the rails and mount i made dont budge period, the corbeau miata rails are flimsy. the driver seat moves alittle while the passenger side doesnt at all.

Such pride in your work. There's a lot of people out there who just slap **** together with reckless indifference.

Sven looks great! I see you took my idea of wrapping the cut edges with rubber trim, looks way better right?

Also 1 bar connecting the seat mounts? cut that out and add a bar on each side. Make it a rectangle for the obvious strength it gives.

oops, i added one more bar to the very top, it squeezes right up to the hump.

i thought i took a pic, ill get one if the weather doesnt turn to crap tonight.


but the Corbeau seat rails are crap compared to the one i made real quick.

Is there another bottom mount or side mount you guys recommend that is adjustable?

Why would anyone take their steering wheel off while driving? That sounds about as bad as drunk driving.

Well if you're lucky the bump steer from being hella slammed yo will turn the wheels for you and make you crash and die. But not everyone can be that luck.
