    I have heard that the last of the bays were compatible with T3's

    i do not believe the 76 fitted in this range.
    do you have a pic of your runners?

    What have you got in there now? If they are originals, I would be getting them reupholstered and repadded. Makes things so much easier and you don't have to worry about engineering.

    If you have alien seats then the mounts may have been corrupted. Otherwise most late Bay will fit. Most have drivers side on runners and passenger side on brackets.

    Hi Ignats,
    Standard late bay seat mounts. Not altered:D. All the 70's:). Ah.. thems the days:p.
    My best knowledge is anything up to 79 will do the job. Maybe some early T3 seats also but others to report compatibility?
    Could you show some pictures of what's there now re seat base & how it fits to track?? Oh... & the actual seats.
    Original seats really hard to come by:(.
    Cheers

    Your mounts are early bay up to but not including 77 model.
    They look unaltered.
    T3 seats will NOT slide in unmodified

    My guess is the non standard seats may have been bolted thru floor ??

    Don’t know of any available seats locally, but I’ll keep my eyes (and ears) out for any leads. ;)
