hey guys

these photos are pretty old but i thought i would chuck them up any way

i made these with only a drill press, mig welder, die grinder, hack saw, and patients ...... dident have a mill..... i needed a mill

any way the idea was i wanted to have a support bar and keep my rear seats. more of a challenge than a necessity because rear seats are useless ha ha

(please note i was on night shift and was bored other wise this would not have happened)

If you own a hatch you MUST support this area! its a very noticeable difference and made the car much more fun to drive













also modded these brackets for a b pillar brace so i could still have a moving top seat belt bracket
lathes are good i like lathes

3 spot welds each side holding those brackets to the body
Only designed to hold a seat latch....

I would never feel save having a harness off that

Through the floor to a large plate would be much betterer
