Default Sparco seat help

So I got a new pair of sparco pro2000 seats and the things hit every where! And I don't know how in the hell am I going to make done brackets for these. Any suggestions?

bottom mounts? if so do what i did.

go to lowes and get 1/8" thick steel bars. (about 6$ for ~3ft)

cut to fit the length from where it bolts into the car and drill holes for the mounts in the seat

now cut off the "feet" off your stock sliders and weld them to the bars.

bolt seat to bar, bolt bar to floor. done

if you wanna keep the sliders you can, thats what i did too.
just weld the slider to the steel bar, and bolt the seat to the provided holes on the slider.

i have had it done on a sparco sprint and i daily the car in it. works great for the past 3yrs

Has anyone done it without hacking up perfectly good stock rails? Like make a bracket that bolts to the floor and the seat without using the stock rails or "feet"?

**** **** ****. So I just finished the driver side mounts, mounted them to the seat taking the measurements of the pasanger side. Go to bolt it on and find that the pasanger side is diferent! I hate my life. These seats are awesome but ithink they r gonna be too big to fit inside
