    I like the improvement. It looks like a 70's hot rod. Oh, yeah, it is a 70's hot rod. :)

    Looks good, I have those exact seats sitting on the bench in the garage.
    How did you mount them?

    I used my original tracks . Bolted front on to seat then drilled hole right in front of back holes in seat and bolted the tracks to floor . I did use big washers and longer bolts to adjust the fronts up higher and not as many in back to raise the back . At 5”11 my head was real close to headliner but now i have a solid 3” - 4” probably headroom .
