Hey all you racing seat guys....

How did you go about seat brackets? I did a search and couldn't find anything on it. Do the stock ranger seats unbolt from the bracets/sliders? Or will I need to custom fab up something. I have a set of Tenzos I was going to put in my neon but they never quite made it in there. I wouldnt mind putting them in my truck. Thanks guys.

I grinded the mounting brackets off the sliders of the stock seats and bolted them onto the sliders of the racing seats. It worked well, but I thought they were uncomfortable.

Well, whatever you do, make sure you can get your stock seats out first. I'm putting Escort GT seats in last night and couldn't get one bolt out of each seat, im gonna torch the brackets tonight. Damn you Chicago snow and salt!!!

Defenitly. I will probably take atleast one of em out this weekend to have a look at the stock brackets. I need to find someone to sell my stock seats to before I put the Tenzos in anyway. It'll be a while.

For the seatbelts, I bolted them where the center seat belt was. If you have 40/60 this will work, but if you have 40/40 I'm not sure.

Theres a bunnch of alloy ' rivits ' holding the factory brackets to the factory seats. Drill them out.

Find some 1/4 inch sheetmetal/stock and make 4 4inchx 2inch wide plates. You will need these to adapt ther factory mounts to the rails of the ' racing ' seats.

Most racing seats use a 14inch trac for their sliders.. Our rangers have like a 13inch.
