Well I finished up at 11:00 last night. Everything went well. It took forever to drill through the 1/4" steel in 2 places on the seat bracket from Planted. I never should have tried that with a cordless drill, lol. I recharged it about a million times. The NHRA rules state that the seat back must touch the rollbar. I ordered a bracket from Kirkey, but it was too short, so I added a couple short pieces of Aluminum that I had. Hey, it touches, lol.

I have the seat mounted with 8 grade 8 bolts on the bracket, the 4 stock locations and 4 new locations to the seat bottom. I Mounted 2 side bracket seat mounts with 4 more bolts in the side of the seat. The seat isn't going anywhere.

I also installed a Simpson 5 pt. racing harness, using grade 8 bolts on it as well. The seat is done and the harness is in. I still have to adjust the belts and clean up. I was too pooped last night.

Speed never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary, that's what gets you.

I have, as far as seats. Piece of plywood with carpet for a rear seat. That satisfies tech. The rest like head liner, Nav radio, door panels, console and carpet will stay.

I looked up the weight's of the seats. About 163.5 lbs. shed. Planted seat bracket and Kirkey seat around 20 lbs. Rear seat delete maybe 20 lbs. I lost around 125 lbs.
Next week my stainless steel exhaust comes off. More weight reduction.
