    Cheers man. I got the seat from ebay (can't remember the vendor) the guy only had one. It's a bit rough around the edges TBO, but I needed a seat in place for the build. I couldn't find a second one.

    It is similar to what was shipped with the Mk1 (Elam) kits in the UK back in the day.
    It allows your bum to get very close to the floor.

    The seats I'm using for the build proper are similar:

    I have a pair of 7s high back sport seats unused but only good if you're a midget, so small. Well for me they are.

    I noticed that my track rods had some surface rust developing, strange because they were supposed to be stainless... Anyway I gave them a couple of coats of POR15.





    I am trying to work out where my steering column should sit, so I can get a custom fitting made to connect the UJ and the steering rack spigot (note the hex bolt I wedged into the UJ to check the alignment).
    The column passes the pedals 2cm above the top of a size 11 shoe.

    The steering wheel aligns with the Steering rack spigot, it is not central with the seat, it’s 2cm off, towards the gear lever. In practice the seating position feels good so I am not concerned.











    What I need is a 14mm (9/16") x 36 spline male fitting, coupled to a 16mm 60 Spline female fitting, with 61mm between the 2 respective 'notches' at either end.
    Does anyone know where I can get one made?

    Cheers man, I wanted to find a specialist steering shop as this is such a critical component, has anyone had any steering parts made?

    Reflecting on my post above, I am thinking of having 2 UJs in the mix, it would give me more flexibility later in the build. Any Thoughts?
