Installing the Seats - Making Your Own Brackets
You have a
couple of options with regard to seat brackets: make
your own or buy a set from Joe Alexander...........and
I've now done it both ways.
The section on making
my own brackets is below while the installation of Joe's
brackets can be found
here.........A.R.E. Seat Bracket Installation. Given
the option, go with Joe's brackets and save your self a lot of
aggravation! But if you're a glutton for
guys just drill new holes in their TR6 floor to match
the Miata rail mounts, but I
figure there's already enough holes in the floor. One of
the 6-Pack Forum members, Kyle Rice was kind enough to
share with me his solution, so I worked from that and
NOTE: Joe Alexander
and his son Sean are now producing the custom brackets which
will make installation a whole lot easier. I recently got a set
and have posted the
installation of them here.
is twofold: the brackets have to positioned "perfectly"
or the seat won't fit, and you have to accommodate a
raised section of the TR6 floor pan. Here's my temporary
set of brackets which will get replaced with something
permanent over the winter. As you'll see, I used a mix of
1/2" aluminum billet and 3/16" steel plate.
end.........enjoy your Miata seats.
