Default ali seats

has anyone done them yet?
had a quick search but to no avail.
i have made a better net than the one in the book from card . at least a moor ergonomic net , but i can not make a decision on the thickness of aluminum to use?
are there any rules to adhere to? bare the head restraint and correctly positioned harness holes.
