I dunno. Aren't most racing buckets rigidly mounted with no adjustment? Are you talking about drag racing buckets, or road race type?

What we did on my brothers Monza was weld 2 pieces of 1/4 inch flat bar stock between the factory seat tracks,then bolt the racing seats to those.I think they even set about the same height as the factory seats.

If you are looking to put a racing seat in your car, I have a deal for ya! I have a Jaz racing bucket. One seat. It comes with two covers (black vinyl with black velour inserts). There are also 2 sets of generic seat brackets. AND, I know I have one, and possibly two seat sliders to give you some movement.

Send me an IM. I want them out of my garage!

I have some road racing seats.. they are made by a company called a2 or something like that .. i got them off of a import car site.. it is adjustable by way of a slide under the seat.. the stock brackets wont work so i might have to fabricate something.. any more ideas?
