This is the back of the front seat base, there is a piece of wood under this base that runs across from frame rail to frame rail.



This is the back seat base, is there no wood under this base between it and the frame rails? This looks like the makings of a squeak, (metal on metal)

Squeak??? you can hear a squeak over the rattles???
BTW, the base shouldn't be touching the frame rails.

If anyone has any pictures from when they built their car to see what goes under the rear seat base to keep it from touching the frame rails I would greatly appreciate it. Or you could just tell me. Hey Charlie, for a guy who says he's built numerous cars you aren't very helpful, it would be nice if you could just tell how its done. Thanks in advance, Doug

well if i remember right the base should not rest on the frame. as the floor boards do not rest on the base, wood is not needed. in the frt the wood is there for strength, as that is where you put your feet. thats the best i can do. charley

OK, this is from memory, but the side sills should be thick enough that the seat base is quite proud of the frame. Is it possible you have the base too low in the body?
