ok, i've searched until my ADD was going apesh!t and i can't find anything about this. I've just aquired a set of matrix racing seats with sliders and i want them in my camry coupe. unfortunately, they don't just bolt right up to the stock brackets or mounting points. anyone know what brackets to use for these seats?? also, how safe do you guys all think it would be if i were to fabricate my own brackets? be advised...responses are going to prompt more questions...lol

I'm pretty good, but any recomendations on what to use? also, is bolting it together acceptable, since i don't have access to a welder? I was thinking about steel rods or maybe tubes.

Mine is made out of flat steel. I dont know if i would bolt it together, that may not give enough strength. I have them bolted to the car and the seats, everthing else is welded.

Be very careful when making or using other brackets for your seats. In a crash, the ammount of force on the seat is huge.

For example: I had a recent accident. My seat (driver's seat) was nearly torn from the frame, and shifted/bent so much from momentum/inertia/etc.. it crushed the centre console.

Just keep that in mind. :)

Yup, factory brackets. Not trying to frighten you, or anything. I'm just saying, if you're going to do that, do it right.
