bucket seat mounts

How did you mount your bucket seats in your cruiser?

I have some mounted in there right now and they are rather ghetto. I some ideas but i wanted to see what you guys came up with.

1" angle mounted to Summit Racing sliders - Corbeau seats.

no pics unfortunately....'bout the only change I would make tho is to figger out a way to lower the seats even more than they are....another 1" would be nice.

thanks for the input. I will probably do a combination of angle iron and round tube.

Guess no one else has bucket seats

i haven't put mine in yet, but i liked what i saw on
www.bluetorchfab.com

check out the project vehicle "tellico", it has the bucket seats mounted to the cage, and i really like it.

if you don't want to build a cage to mount your seats (haha), you could probably just weld together some tube/bracketry that will mount to the original bolt locations.

so basically, i just told you what you already know, so...yeah.

I used some angle and square tubing to bolt the seats to the stock sliders. That way I knew they would bolt to the floor and they still slide back and forth.

Here's mine without the picture:

Factory sliders with the vertical lip ground down so the seats aren't too tall (still a bit taller than stock which I like), 3/4" square tube welded to it which matches the bolt holes in the new seat. Finally, rear tube has a nut welded into it for a 1/2" bolt so the belts can be bolted to the seat frame - clean!

I'm going to do mine with like some of those big coil springs you see under those rocking horses that they have in the kidde section of the park.
Of course I'll probably need some kind of limiting strap or else it'll be like sitting on top of a big slinky
