Transferring seat rails

Post by sdudum »

Hi guys, I have a pan that is custom, thus it does not have seat rails on it. I therefore need to transfer the old seat rails onto this pan. What are the dimensions i need to work with to ensure correct alignment of the rails and thus the seats.

What I found when fitting my seat rails to MeFusco,

was to fit the loose rails to the seat, at its center of its settings,

place seat at the most comfortable place and weld rail into place.

Think that with measurements it would be rather hit and miss as the seats may be bent already.

Good luck
