re help. my seats runners are rusted
hi all

my first post and a puzzle!.

myi have taken out my seats but the runners are very rusty. beyond help.

the adjuster bar has broken on one and this is not available from dmc in the US.

does anyone know of an equivalent, or anywhere that they can be restored?.
i think too rusty to weld, has broken under the seat.

i have a spair set of grey seats that i am installing.

thanx for any help

Hi steve, theres a few people who may have them runners, Dave Howarth, Chris Nickolson, Dan Shane to name but a few, just phone about im sure you will sort something out cheers Tony TT

thanx for the advice. i have found out now that the adjust bars are the same on an esprit.

the runners themselves are available from dmc in the US.

thanx again

Just a thought - if you do replace them, hang on to the old ones - they can be shot-blasted to remove rust for very little cost - tenner or thereabouts - then once clean, they could be welded quite easily. A fresh new coat of black paint and you're on your way...
