Default Seat brackets and Sparco seat

I bought a Sparco Sprint and decided to make my own seat brackets.
I was going to mount the seat through its bottom with the original seat rails but it made the seat to seat too high.
Bought a 36" x 3" x 4" x 1/4" thick piece of 6061 aluminum online and with the help of Harold made these brackets. They are not the nicest but they are very sturdy. Installing the seats with the side mount brackets allowed me to get them a little lower and in perfect position (for me haha). I guess I'll bring a cushion for short co-drivers when I autocross.

Default Momo steering wheel

I bought a Momo 350mm steering wheel from Ebay for $85 shipped. Its a little old and worn but it feels nice and since I dont have PS 350mm was the right choice for me.

I bought a grant steering wheel 3 bolt adapter for $25, a 3 bolt to 6 bolt adapter that was very very good quality for $7.95 shipped!!! (Accutronix Momo to Grant Steering Wheel Adapter | eBay)
and I used a 2.5" extension, also from "flashpower" from Ebay for $45.
Total investment = $138. I've seen people sell just a Momo wheel for $150.

How are those brackets still holding out for you? I am wanting to do something similar with my Kirkey. I knocked out the rear mounts and plan on bolting them to the floor. You feel they are sturdy enough for you?

I got pci brackets, they position the seat more aligned with the steering wheel. I can sell you those I made for $10 plus shipping if you want them

I should have waited to order the material. I ordered 36" 4 x 4 6061-T6 like 2 days ago for almost $50. I think you could easily get that price out of those in the FS section. I am a bit worried about placement with making my own brackets. I had some issues with alignment when bolting the stock seat rails to my Kirkey.
