Drivers Seat
#1
Is it possible to increase the height of the driver's seat on the Mk2 ?? either by use of spacers OR by fitting a height adjustable seat ??

I used a piece of 2"x1" steel bar.

Cut three short sections and drilled to allow the bolts to pass through. Bought longer bolts and fixed it down. The only one that requires a bit of work is the front offside one as it fixes to an angled piece of the floorpan. Again, a piece of the same bar but cut each end on a bevel allowed to bolt through in two places to allow for the offset caused by the frame moving up 1". Make sense?

It's not safety, especially in a case of road accident.

I understand your concern re this, but if the seat is affixed securely with appropriate bolts, there is no reason it should be any less safe than the OEM fitment....

In my country I will not recieve MOT's certificate because of this "tuning", though I live in banana republic. This mean that car will not have permittance to use my car in a roads of common usage (according to our laws it's a roads where people and cars moves).

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

Not all berls have that overhead shelf! The specs are such a joke for the vans.
