Sprint. My lats are getting too wide, so I'm about to take the cover off and widen the seat.


I took some 2" wide 1/4" steel and bolted the front in the stock location, then drilled holes in the floor to mount at the rear. Then made a jig from cardboard for the seat hole pattern, and mounted to that. I needed all the head room I can get. I fucked up one set that's too close. If you want them, just pay for shipping.

Nice, i'm looking at picking up a set of Momo Starts from a guy and will be mounting them on the floor cause I'm 6'3 and need massive headroom so I don't beat the hell out of my skull when I get my rollbar. I'll be fabbing up brackets like yours out of 2x 1/4" steel, I have access to plenty, i'll keep your offer in mind, thanks man.

yes, only one problem though....i have a hold on my paypal account at the moment because of an ebay sale. Dude lives in australia and i told him I had to ship the item ground and that it would take 4-6 weeks. Well he hasnt gotten it yet, but its only been 4 weeks....he already won a dispute in paypal and hnow im afraid that when he actually recieves the item hes going to keep it and not return it...so Im out a turbo manifold and 170 dollars.

Geez, my x-mas looks like crap in terms of gifts in comparison. Maybe I'm just poor. I got some candy, socks, some pots & pans, and a top boot for the Miata.

Don't beat yourself up about that. My uncle, a highly respected doctor of medicine, didn't get all his student loads paid off until he was in his 40s.

I had a scholarship that paid tuition and I worked while going to school to pick up all the rest. I got my priorities wrong, ended up buying a house, and quitting school to pay for said house (1 semester shy of graduating). If I could do it again, I'd get big *** loans too.
