Series II JAG and Rover

Travel: 357 mm

Slider: Ball bearings

Similar to the Recaro rails. The rails are riveted to the seats. I bought a set from a wrecker for around $100 and told them to keep the seats.

Mounting plates

The plates were designed so holes can be cut in the carpet and the carpet fitted over the pillars. The rear pillars are bolted to the plate using coutersunk high tensile bolts. The front pillars are welded to the plate and then tapped.

Recaro 0.70.9NT rails mounted

Recaro rails mounted on adaptor plates with new seat adjuster hoop.

Adaptor plates on the Monaro seats.

The factory mount bolts at the rear are further apart than the front bolts.

I have removed the factory mount bolts. The rear bolts have been replaced with countersunk bolts. The front bolt screws into the adpator plate and will attach to the Recaro rails. The rear bolt for the Recaro rails is tapped into the adaptor plate.

Nylock nuts are used to attach the seat to the Recaro rails.

Monaro Seats

When the seats are in my driving postion the rails and adjuster hoop are hidden by the seat.
