That looks really nice! I bet they are more comfortable than the stock ones. I have to do something with my seats, the covers are held together with duct tape and it's starting to stick to my butt.

The B&M I ended up fabbing and welding in my own mount to raise it 2" and push it back another 2". The stock shifter was too far out of reach to really slam the gears without reaching. It now sits right in my hand.
I'll take some more pictures for you now that it's more complete and the dash is back in

Those seats look great! I may have to start visiting you-pull-it yards to find something like that.

Interior is back together except no door panels yet. Having too much fun driving it and time lately has been scarce.
Yup the seats would be practically free if it was in American dollars lol We have places called Kenny U pull here and all parts are flat prices no matter the condition or what vehicle they are from. You can find some real gems but things get picked fast. Not sure if the states have something similar?

Is there an easier way to mount them do you think? Dont have the tools or space to fab anything myself.
Unfortunately it takes some fabrication in order to fit these in safely. I had to make custom mounts to Weld to the floor since I started with a bench seat car. Not to mention the brackets I had to fab for underneath the car to bolt to. Then the seats themselves need custom mounts made. The previous owner hacked in the factory bucket seats in with bolts through the floor and alot of washers. While it's an easy way of doing it, it's terrifyingly unsafe and a large reason why I redid them.

I just noticed the photobucket thing myself. Sad as I have been using them for a long time.
Interestingly enough, if I open the pictures by right clicking and opening in a new window they will now load here.

I bought some seats from a Mazda RX8 to put in my '72. I won't get a chance to start fabricating the brackets for a month or so, but I am excited t have comfortable seats with lots of adjustments.
