Got the power steering pump bracket fully welded and in place. gonna hafta find a spot for the reservoir after the fenders are back on. Just wish I had made the bracket a wee bit shorter so both V-belts would be the same size.

Now on to the seats. I like cheap seats. I found a pair of Polaris Razor seats on Craigslist. I spent quite a long time last winter rigging up a seat slider from a Chevy Cavalier. It really turned out nice, but when I set up the driver's set on the gas tank it sat up too much. My head was pretty much as high as the roll bar, probably not a good idea. I think we will have to design something else a little shorter.

We'll start the redesign on the passenger side. I had a bunch of 1" square tubing from a canoe rack I made for my old TJ. Don't have the TJ anymore, so time to repurpose the tubing. I was just a little reluctant to use the tubing, as the wall thickness isn't super thick, but it's exactly the same tubing that is in the seats. Also, the seat belts/harness will bolt throught the floor and to a spreader welded into the roll cage. I want to sorta duplicate the Willys set up, whereby I can tilt the seat forward, although the highback seats limit the tilt. I also want to be able to remove the seat easily. Instead of the stock set up with a flar spot in the hinge allowing the hinge to be disassembled, I made mine with pins. I also rigged it to sit down over a stud in the back and lock in place with another pin. This should keep the seat from flopping up over bumps.

   Your PS pump mount looks stock. nice work.

   Oh, hey, a few pages back you had a photo looking down into the engine bay, and I couldn't help but notice your U-bolt mount-plate with the ends pointing up out of harms way.
   What vehicle did those come off of ?

   thanks

Thank you.
The rear U-bolt plates are from an 80's Dodge rear spring. I talk about them on page 1. Looking down into the engine bay, the driver's side is from a 1988-98 Chevy/GMC 1500 u-bolt plate, which allows you to flip the ubolts. Because the spring pad is cast into the pumpkin, the passenger side is a stock Wagoneer spring pad and u-bolts.
