I have some elise seats to fit in. I have propped them up just to check position and angle etc
I need to make up some brackets
Can I use aluminium or does it need to be stronger.
Would it be better to fix the rear legs to the floor or at least have a quick release set up like a wing nut or something?
Ideas welcome please

Aluminium should be strong enough, seats came out of an Elise!

This is my seat frame creation. Ignore version one and look for the later one on page 2.

I wanted the seat to sit as low as possible.

If you are 6foot or above Id suggest mounting the seat behind the cross member.

Best to have all 4 corners held in place. Or the seats can move if the frame you are making is not solid. alloy will be fine.
