alright, the cobra frames can be used with/without seatbelts but using seatbelts is a pain as the fixing are very very very tight!

i made my own, 4 bits of angel iron, and i still use the vaux subframe and hight adjustment also

basicly a box shape, with 8 holes, 4 for the orriginal subframe, 4 for the new seat

yes, pretensioners are still in. the seat bolts to the frame via some hole which he drill on the angle iron. this angle iron is then mounted to the subframe using another set of holes.
its about 6mm thick stuff of the top of my head.

Sorry Adam, that's incorrect. Our Corsa frame replaces the original and costs 64.95 including VAT and Carriage and is in stock.
