Seat Adjustment

Dear friends,

The Avanti factory supplies a rearward extention that is not long enough for my long legs to comfortably reach the throttle and brake pedals without having to "scrunch up" my legs. Do you have any ideas how I can add a rearward extension to the existing rails so I can sit a bit further from the pedals?

Best regards,

Without changing seats and another make of floor mounts, you can take the bracket sections that bolt to the front, cut them and weld an extension of flat bar stock in. That would also require drilling new rear mounting holes. That's what was done to my car several years ago. I've since installed new seats and brackets and sold my old sliders. When you do make the modification, you pretty much lose any chance of someone sitting behind you as the seat back will nearly touch the back seat base.

Dear Gunslinger,

I pulled the seat and added a 2" spacer as you suggested; it worked just fine. I also added a new seat belt assembly to replace the two-buckle one came from the factory on my '70 Avanti II.

Thanks,
