    Default SWTD Seats

    How do you guys have your front seats mounted? I am in the process of replacing mine and am going to replace the home made bracket to secure them better. Does anyone make a stringer mount specific for this setup?

    Thanks!

    1.5" x 1.5" aluminum .250 angle across the tops of the stringers, with 12" x 4" aluminum .250 plates bolted to the stringer.

    Default Angle

    Sleek - my setup was similar to yours in concept - not even remotely close in the looks or functionality department. On mine the angle was simply sitting on the stringers. I didn't like that. Very interesting. I like the idea of adding a plate between the seats for cup holders........

    Tim's setup with the cup holder is very clean. Doing something similar on mine but will have a little recessed compartment for little things.
