A while ago I bought a full set of black leather seats covers for a Falcon XR8 ute seats, so have been on the look out for the seats.
I picked up a set today in as new condition, from a FG XR8 ute. Also got them really cheap because the guys father wanted the headrests for another car, so just need to source a set for my seats.

The seats have electric motors to adjust the seats, which at the time I thought was another bonus, but unfortunately they make the seats sit up to high and the last thing I want is to have to cut down my seat pans.

I have removed the seat frames and fitted an old mustang runner So I had a thought of making up a flat metal frame to attach the mustang type to, just making sure I get the seat central to the floor seat pan.

Well you get the general idea, so any ideas or comments are welcome.

Cheers, Neil.

Hi Neil,
they're the same seats I have in my car.
I just bought a set of generic seat rails from autobahn. They came with 3mm flat bar so you could make them fit pretty much anything.
The rails are pretty low too.

Awesome Jeff, thanks for that, not sure if we have an Autobarn here in Perth, will have to check. Is there a part number that you used or is it a frame that fits all?

Because of the 3mm plate supplied, you can fit it to pretty much anything.

This was it:

I just welded bolts in the right spots to fit the original floor mounts.

I would recommend going with Jeffs ones if you can get them somewhere here.
I made up some for mine but the mustang runners needed clearance under the release pivots so the support plates need some bending. But i did manage to get the seat quite low.

They are available in Perth as we have used them at work, but damned if I can remember where they came from.

Seems here in Perth they are called Autopro and there is a Superstore in Malaga, so will go check them out this week.

Thanks to all.

That's the way I had thoughts of going and I would do it that way, if I hadn't thrown out my old runners. Argh
I will check out the autopro ones first, see what they cost.
