front seat question
#1
hey guys and gals, just pulled front seat out of my wifes 72 convert, and found 40mm spacers and non grade bolts between runners and seat, is this a short persons fix or factory ( i doubt, but asking) i would have thought runners bolted to base of seat with grade 8 bolts, thanks for your knowledge

That would have been the short persons fix.

My 73 convertible had them as well. I don't remember them being 40 mm though, maybe an inch high. Both driver and passenger seats had them.

I'd think it would not be factory. If it were, they would be overly engineered.
