You drag your jewels over the bolster getting out the first time, you remember to lift up and out from then on.
haha, don't mean to laugh but that was real funny and I now understand where you were coming from in your previous post. The "Lift Up and Out" statement should be made on a red sticker w/ white lettering and placed on the dash - like the handles you see on planes.

It is not as quick as the factory configuration - but when it came time to load larger cargo into my truck it was a snap to completely remove the passenger seat.


I used 1" square stainless steel tubing for the main runners and standard steel 1" x 2" rectangiular tubing for the cross members and mounting locations for the corbeau sliders.

I would probably go the fluted knobs route as well just in case I had to get the seats up w/out tools.

Thanks for the tubing list too!

I mean i am 6'2 and my custom hard top is lower than a normal soft top and i still am ok. I did relocate my battery to the back kinda where one of the landy boxes would fit to make it easier to jump trucks since i am out in montana right now where dead batteries are a daily dilemma.
Thanks - I'll add the Baja RS's to my "look into" list. That must have been one accident - although ski racing is definitely pretty gnarly.

Another potential option is the new Exmoor Elite seat. They are making the first set up for us now and they will end up in Beach Runner #3. You can see them on the Exmoor web site. I haven't sat in them yet (no one has, we are getting the first set sold) so I don't know if they are nice or not, but they look good and still give access under the seat in the normal way. Once they go in I'll report back on what they were like, might be another option for folks and they can be made in all the factory fabrics for a nice "stockish" look.

I know that people are not fond of the SVX in general, but what about the seats in it?
