Don't go wasting people's time answering your questions here if you don't trust you will get the right answer from them , if you take a bunch of tools from dc's knowledge over the members here on HR you really haven't looked at some of the cars in the members section .
And why is it too high ? you haven't even tryed to fit in the car with a helmet yet have you .
we still cannot see a picture or measurement of the seat ?
most people get the seat manufactures measurement and work out if its is very different from the stock seat before trying to fit it . I have a saas seat and i downloaded the measurements before i handed cash over for it . Does the bride company have such a thing ? as seat specs . Since there is so many about they must have something as i fit it hard to believe that all there seats fit into all cars .
i looks as is if they do, but then again it doesnt look like...
buddy i had a bit of a problem when i installed my obx reclinables installed...
i measured everything, and then when i got my car back from the shop i found i that i couldnt fit in anymore coz my head was at such a painful angle...
i found out that the stock seats when i was sitting in it, that it sunk about 2in down... so i had to have the foam cut out and new base net put in so i got the same "sink" when i sat in it...
on the plus side i didnt think i was possible to make the seat more comfotable!
I've got a similar problem with a Bride fixed back I just installed in my car.
Mine sits on custom-made mounts which are standard ae86 rails with sidemounts welded on top. They look to have about the same dimensions as the FG rails height-wise. I don't know what most people consider too high or too low, but I find this rail about 2-3 inches too high. There is very little clearance between the bottom of the seat and the sliders (only about 10-15mm).
I think my only option to get it any lower would be making up a custom mount with no slidability, maybe with 4 seperate pieces (one each corner) or a rail at the front and back?
I'd be interested to see what others have done to overcome the height problem that many people seem to run into with fixed back seats. Post up some pics of your set-up if you can, I'd like to see what some people call low, just to get an idea.
In the next few weeks I'll be having a go at making a REAL super-low mount, so any input will be appreciated!
all fixed.. i went down to bunnings and got new L shape brackets that sit the the seat down lower. i use the new brackets on the front and the old buddy club front brackets on the back now.. its all good now
