Bucket seat mounts

Hi all, Can anyone point me in the direction for some cheap, low mounts for my Mk2 mr2 that i can use to mount my new Sparco Sprint bottom mount seat?

There isn't really a low option for bottom mount seats. all the rails/plates bolt to the stock location so the seat sits on top of that. If runners are needed then this adds to the height.

My last mr2 had a sidemount seat, to get a decent low mounted position the stock welded in mounts had to be removed and the new mounts fitted directly to the floor. the floor also needed spreader plates to take the loadings.

If you're tall it's more of a pain to get the right height.

Edit: err ignore the pricing on the below, :facepalm: but this is the cheapest style you'll find.

Something like this is about as cheap as it gets for ready made. If you are handy with tools then you could make something similar for less. Don't cut corners, in a crash the mount needs to be strong.
