Bought a welder recently, and today did my first fab - seat base for my new (red) Evo 2.

Getting set for wheel to wheel at Midwest Council.

So far:
Installed Oil Cooler, Trans Cooler, Seat Base (not quite complete yet). Next: finish seat, weld in Kirk Bar, fire extinguisher / mount, I'll be ready to rumble.

Anybody need to make a base, let me know, I'll tell you what I learned. Welding is sooo cool.

Make sure you Evo seat has a FIA sticker on it If not you may be required to have a seat brace from the rear. We are using an Eov seat and it has the FIA sticker and I've taken care to insure it stays in good shape. I'm doing SCCA events .not sure how Midwest Council fells about this matter.

You probably want to make sure you have a seat back brace with or without a sticker. The seat will fold like carbboard without one if you are in a side impact collision.
