Yellow is good, means it's not final

Since you are not the first to do a tube build, sorry to burst your bubble, I am sure you can find a plethora of solutions that even I don't have to tell you to keep away from []

It's just to bolt a fiberglass seat to. I could probaby get away with a piece of flat bar. I wish I could put peices in the bottom of tunnel in case of a side impact. Then those seat bars would have some structural value but for now, it's a seat mount.

Why can't you put a bolt-in piece down there? Would be plenty strong structural-wise so long as you lined it up right.

Or you could run parallel bars from the tunnel to the door, then flat strap front to back with holes drilled.


Man lay off the []

I assume you are mounting the seats on side mounts, right? You can get some nice think strap, keep it small, for 3''. Plus you have the tube strength to the trans tunnel. Want to go overkill, run 4 smaller bars between the 2 running across, maybe 1.5'', then lay the strap on that plating the top and still having access below.

May be the ticket right there

White makes easy to find leaks, cracks, etc.

You have a TIG now, a AWIC hidden in the cowl would be sweet and let you run a standard direction manifold.
