so what have you done to replace that silly little sheet metal hut
by the door on the rear of the seat slider?

i noticed some flex and pulled up the carpet to find the spot welds non existant, and a tiny crack in the floor where all the stress has been going.
(save your fat-*ss jokes for cartman)

(ive been digging around for replacement seat and have decided to go with
honda crx seat if i can find a good one. they are light, buckety and simple.
the prelude ones have too much junk on em, nissan nx(?) are a close second
choice. any other suggestions?)

my first brace idea is:
1/4 x 2 x 12 plate bolted into the seat belt hole and the similar in front of it,
welded to a 1 x 1 square tube which replaces the door side seat mount and bolts to the other rear seat mount in the floor by the driveshaft hump.

might use 2x2 square and jack the seat up an inch, then would have to make
a thing for the front also :P
looks like a 3 weld concept.....

(dang board editor removes the spaces in my attempts to diagram via notepad)

anyone have any ideas or photos of what they've done?
