Got my Corbeau seat installed on the driver's side this weekend. Had to completely re build the mounting bracket and do some heavy massaging to the trans tunnel to get it to sit low enough for my height. Over all I'm really happy with it, it's more comfortable and much more supportive than my factory broken seats. Still have to get an adapter bracket for the passenger side to get the other one in.

Yeah it reclines. It's a Corbeau Baja RS.

All together about 4 or 5 hours, though a good portion of that was spent shooting the shit, lunch, trying to get my friend's shitty 110 mig to work, and just staring at me sitting in it. We abandoned the idea of building a new forward seat mount. Cut the back parts of the bracket down using the original mounting locations and bent the forward parts out and bolted them straight to the floor with a plate on the bottom to reenforce it.

Got a lot done this week. Front frame stiffeners have been welded in, passenger seat prepped and the new Corbeau Baja just needs to be bolted in, front axle pushed an inch forward, new UCA bushings, and new upper bump stops. I have an Nth Degree engine oil skid coming because I have a few nasty dents on the oil pan and I feel I'm just on borrowed time with leaving it be. There's some dents on my transmission pan too, I'd like to eventually figure out a way to cover that as well, perhaps modify the oil pan skid to cover and connect back to my belly pan. I also did some things to my flat bed as well, new LED tail and marker lights and a new 7 pin plug so they actually work now, it'll also be getting some new tires shortly as the current ones are all sorts of dry rotted.
