    It said the first one was too long so I shortened it and it posted both! Crazy!

    Unfortunetly I don't have very many more pictures that what I've posted and it's kind of difficult to see what is there for the seat mounting. Basically I unbolted the floor pan and cut out the old seat mounting. I then took some wood and blocked the seat into a position I wanted it, tried sitting in it (carefully -ha) and eyeballed everything. I made the framework so it cradled the seat bottoms nicely and welded it in. Main thing I've learned is that making nice cuts in the tubing so it fits right and makes a better weld is alot easier than trying to weld up large gaps. Hope any of that helps.

Basically I unbolted the floor pan and cut out the old seat mounting. I then took some wood and blocked the seat into a position I wanted it, tried sitting in it (carefully -ha) and eyeballed everything. Then I took some square tubing and measured out what I had to do. I made the framework so it cradled the seat bottoms nicely and welded it in. Welded in a couple of different tabs for the floor pan to my new framework and bent the pan to fit.

    I haven't been doing much updating because my digital camera got stolen. My other cars have been more recently updated than the buggy. Been busy with the Jeep- had the CJ5 out driving around the other day, major fun just like the buggy is!

    Yeah they don't really have a category for that do they. Well that's ok- we know what it is haha. You should put up some narration- cool looking buggy!
