: : Is there a "proper" mechanism to use to attach the original seats to my #30-201? Or are the seats simply bolted thru the holes in the floorboard? Some standard adjustable seat rails would be handy, if a type of donor vehicle is known.

: The seats on your car are simply bolted to the floor. Drilling holes in the seat bottoms will give you the distance you need for comfortable seating. I have thought of, and experimented with, seat adjusters from donor cars, without satisfactory results. If a donor seat adjuster is installed under the seats of a Turner, it would make the seating position too high in the cockpit in my experience. Everyone is different, however, and you may find something suitable if you search around for a suitable apparatus.

Bolting the seats directly to the floorpan was a factory design intent to reduce racing weight in competition by eliminating seat runners.
