    Tom, if I am not mistaken, this also makes the seat not able to go as far back as stock correct? I have my driver seat in the most fully extended position all the time for my ridiculously long legs, and since I like symmetry so much I have the passenger seat all the way back as well. This mod does not allow passenger seat to go all the way back to the original farthest setting correct?

    PittVXr - I forgot all about Leah's arrival back in Feb. How's she doing? Sleeping through the night yet?

    LittleBeast - You are absolutely correct sir. The amount the passenger seat is moved forward to allow more access to the rear seat, rear positioning is lost by the same amount. Thus far, nobody has complained about loss in rear travel of the passenger seat in mine.

    Got me on to my next mod.
    Instead of seat extenders, how bout I remove the passenger seat and replace with one of those short folding beach chairs, talk about good rear seat access?
    So I said to myself, I said "Handee"
    and this voice came back and said..
    "He's not in, may we take a message?"

    Only if you want the passenger seat to slide forward when you release the tilt. IIRC that's the only difference between the drivers & passenger seats.

    I wonder if any of our Proton Taxi's have discovered it's easier to just remove the passenger seat and put your fares in the back seat. Ya don't need extenders. Just a thought, that's what they did in the VW Beetle taxis in mexico.

    Stop...Stop.. You're both right it's your thread.
    But, I've got the needle!
    Back on thread, I'm not sure about seat extenders, wideners maybe. Like I said before, the prolem with bucket seats is some have bigger buckets than others. How's that for an extension of the extender thread ?

    I know. That's what made it so friggin funny.

    BTW, you have a 04 Eclipse right? How do you remove the tweeter cover on the dash (wifey's is buzzing real bad & I need to replace the tweeter).

    Bilateral thread jack - now this is getting intense.

    Handee - your oversized bucket is something you'll just have to live with. I don't think anyone here is gonna be able to help you wit dat.

    Thanks mucho to Jo ... he sent me his seat sliders.

    I dropped them off at 'Welder Guy' this morning. He'll try to let me know a ball park price on Monday. He anticipates it coming in well under $100 (IIRC, that's what Tone charged when I bought mine).

    I told him 10 sets but I see that the survey is currently at 13. I hope y'all are serious about buying them 'cause I don't wanna sit on any that don't sell. I can't afford to front the money either (I'm out about $100 from when I was doing the diff brackets). Also, I'm only planning on this one production run so if you're interested ... now's the time.

    I assume everyone wants them painted black. Is this true?

    More details to follow.

    Well I'm totally serious. Which version did you go with? As I understand it, there was a 2.5", 3.5", and 4.5" version...

    I talked to Ron this morning. He's estimating the cost to fab up 13 sets of brackets will be about $50/set. He thinks he can have them done in about 3 weeks.

    I'll keep you posted on when/how sales will begin.
