Are those Scat Procar seats?

Did you get some kind of adjustable seat tracks with them?

Cheap and free usually work good for me too.

I'm not a fan of the slotted angle frame... that stuff bends and twists pretty easy. Looks like some sharp edges too.

Be carful out there man.

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
I'm not a big fan of the slotted angle iron for fabbing things. I'm not an engineer by any means, but it looks sketchy using it. It could be fine, I don't know. Just giving my thoughts and concerns. I've used square tubing before that was 1"x1"x1/8" for a seat base to mount the seat tracks to the seat but not as a frame. I think the slotted angle iron would be a little flimsy. Again, just my thoughts and concerns.

Doesn't exactly scream "secure" to me. A decent accident could snap that perforated angle like a breadstick.

Im pretty sure the four seat bolts that mount the seat sliders to the seat will go way before the angle and its not really doing anything other than bridging the gap between the bronco2 brackets cus i had to cut them in half so they would bolt down
