Default Just use the Sierra runners

Hello Janne,

I've just sorted out my runners.
You can simply use the runners from the Sierra passenger seat.
Take them off the seat and remove the brackets (angle grinder). You'll have very flat runners, linked with a steel wire. Weld two pieces of flat strip (80 mmwide) between the main chassis beams and you can mount the runners flat above the bottom.
It takes an additional construction between the runners and the seat but you can adapt this to any seat of your choice and decide on height and tilt of the seat later. Another advantage : changing to another seat is always possible.

If you can't get some Metro ones then folk like Merlin Motorsport do Cobra seat runners. Then there is the series Landrover, the drivers side seat is on some very low runners, you must have had those in Sweden?

Just made Geeman's(although it needs trimming up) then it's Jason's (although all the black parts are done ) then yours Jan and sorry if I'm holding things up for folk I don't have the space to have lots of parts laying around so have to make it, trim it, pack it and get it collected then start all over again..
