Perfect.that's exactly what I needed.looks simple enough.good job man.

One question.that part that ties into the seat bolts.did you just put longer bolts in the seat? Or was there enough thread left that the seat bolts didn't occupy to fit other bolts?

ok cool. i wonder if i could just weld that area in. because i have home made seat brackets.the bolts are a little bit of a pita.but im sure if not it wouldnt be to big of a deal.

did you weld those in yourself? just wondering cause they look pretty good

Once you get into the k member and all that.I have a almost new rack and pinion for sell in the classifieds for pretty cheap.it is the cobra speced one I think.with the 15:1 ratio and its aluminum.

Yeah I think the ds loops are pretty cheap.but with my new user title I feel obligated to fab it.haha

To further strengthen them? I plan on tieing a drive shaft loop into mine in the back.then the front of my car is x braced.but that's actually a good idea.
hey since you don't live to far.when you get around to doing your I have some good tubing to spare if you want.that is if you want to build your own.I know they are not that expensive so it May or maynot be worth it for ya.

I would be more than happy. I will have some experience doing mine first so yours should be easier.

Re: Maximum motorsport subframes

subframe connectors are high on my priority list as well but i too have the issue of lack of welding experience and its hard to find welders thatll do that around here.
