Default Elise seats without subframes.

Hi everyone.

I've got someone selling some seats without the subframes. Can I mount the seats without them or do I need them for the Marlin.

Not seen the underside of Elise seats.

The passenger seat wouldn't be too much bother, as it doesn't move.

The driver's seat will be more awkward, unless you're happy to fix the seat location.

Without seeing the underside of the seats its a bit hard to say but:

You could get some seat runners from just about any motorsport shop that sells seats. Usually with a bit of square section tubing, nuts, bolts and washers it isn't too difficult to come up with some method of fixing the seats to the runners and the runners to the floor.

Make sure its sturdy and spread the load, your life depends on it.

I want them adjustable so runners it is I need really. But there like hens teeth.
Need to make a decision soon. Asked a few breakers.
