Another job ticked off the list as the seat mountings have now been adjusted on the seat rails – positioned, drilled, compression tube welded in, ground down and primed. EPAS is now ready to be chopped and have the Lifeline boss welded on, which means we have a steering position at last.


New Seats

I sold on my Sparco Revs. They were over ten years old and I wanted something with lateral head protection for when I’m wearing the weight of a helmet. I’d previously managed to pick up an OMP HTE on eBay, like it and decided that I’d get another, but then was offered a cranking deal on a pair by YB Racing, the leading UK OMP Distributor. They’re newer seats and completely unused. The test was to make sure they would both fit in the car side by side.


To my relief they do fit. I will need to alter the drillings in the seat bars welded into the cage, moving the holes on the tunnel side another 20mm or so closer to the tunnel, but this is a relatively easy job to do. So two new seats and one seat up for sale…
