Now that the tunnel tubes were in place I could start the seat mounts. I opted for a roughly 10 degree lay back which was where I set all my seats according to my angle finder. I ditched my idea for a one piece mount after seeing that the mounting locations on the seat don't sit on the same plane.
I added a seat tube below the rockers side of the seat to bridge the gap.
There's still about an inch gap between the seat and main hoop X in the event that it ever collapsed and deflected towards me.
I've also got about 8 inches between my head and the nearest cage tube. If I hit my head on a roof tube I'll be dead already from my neck stretching that far.

I've had my 2.5 RS a couple of months now and I've decided to start a build thread, hoping it's going to help me get this thing over the finish line.
This RS is my 4th Subaru
My first was a Catalunya special edition, the car I wish I still had, hence the mid-life crisis build :D
2nd was an...
picked me up another chassis. $600 and it runs, mostly!
Still have the ej20g, gearbox, RobTune and iWire harness, stance coilovers (I had just bought to replace my godspeed crap) and lots of other parts... so here we go again!
From the ashes, she will rise!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY
ID Vehicle: To simplify repairs/fixes/etc I'd love to know the cars history.
Main focus: handling, functionality, reliability.
End goal, yes the beaten horse "22b" exterior styling.
