I want to fabricate new mounts for my front bucket seats, so they'll be more securely anchored to the floor. If you have some pictures, please post them - especially if they tie into the roll cage.

here are a couple of pics from some I built for my brother's cruiser.The drivers seat is a little lower because of the tank on the pass side. They are not tied into the cage but the floor was reinforced quite a bit so I think it will be fine as is .

Oh btw I have a tube shark with a 1" square tube die . I'm sure you could do it with a manual one though.

That looks good. How high do the seats sit? Does it feel higher than the stock location?
Just a little higher than stock.Great if your under 6 foot like me.But when you build something custom you can almost put them where ever you want..

Timely thread for me. I am thinking I will have the tubes going from a-pillar to b-pillar welded, and have tabs off them to bolt the frame for the seat rails to.
I need to get to the tank to pull the tunnel cover to work on the linkage for the tranny and t-case and pull the tranny. Murphy's law will dictate how soon you need to pull the cage to get at the tank. :D
