Seat mounting for racing

I trying to find the best way to raise the racing seats in my 61 Chevy c10? Truck came with them installed and they do not have brand logo on them to search for optional brackets. I was told to use wood blocks? I want to make sure they will pass inspection a raceway !

Wood won't pass,best way is weld square tubing to the floor and mount the seat to it with grade 8 bolts.

You will need to fabricate some new steel seat risers and bolt them in accordance with race rules in order to pass..

Moving to basics..

Seat Brackets

I have attached a couple of pictures of some brackets that I welded up for my "racing buckets" that have gone into my 1990 1/2 Ton Chevy LowRider. Then, if the other file loaded too, I built some "end cap sheet metal covers" to hide the gaping 1 1/2" tubing holes.

Yeah, you're welcome. They're actually pretty basic and very simple, once you lay out your mounting locations,. etc.....I realize my other pic didn't load as it was too big for the site to handle. If you want to see what the "end cap sheet metal cover" looks like, you'll have to send me an e-mail to "CrankShaftmcc@att.net" and I'll send them to you.
