I have just obtained a pair of Sparco race seats (the cheap Sprint
Junior seats - http://www.sparcousa.com/pseats_comp.asp?id=176 ). I
have seen these in MGB rally cars, so I am pretty certain they fit
but my first test indicates that they are a tight fit at the front
against the tunnel.
My question is about fitting them in the car. At least for the
drivers' side I will be using the matching "slider" mount. My
concern is about the strength of the floor that I will be bolting the
seats to. On the passenger side I actually tore a hole out of the
floor when struggling to free up a seized bolt in the original seat.
The floor isn't very thick, is it?
According to our regulations, "the attachment points shall be
reinforced by the use of plates of not less than 75mm x 50mm x 3mm
Of course I trust that this reinforcement is adequate but has anyone
done anything to generally reinforce the floor of their 'B (or felt
it was necessary)?
