Floor, seat location, and floor bracing brings the suck

Those are pretty sweet, but I don't know if there $150 sweet . Might not be a bad deal for my seat. Being as I want my wife to drive this as well and shes short .




I am setup to go round 3 with the floor First two attempts have been scrapped and started over. Ony about $200 in materials and 12 hrs of time spent on the first two rounds . I am gonna wait for round 3 though, gonna focus on some other aspects like getting the rear links made and mounts done etc.. I need to measure for my aluminum lowers.
