Nice! Looks just like mine except the wheels. You might also consider a tow hook. If you have trouble It's a pain in the _ss to get your car off the track without one and almost impossible to do it without tearing stuff up.

my seat are the sparco sprint V. they are for medium to small drivers and they fit us great. they weight 17 pounds and are FIA rated. the new seat bracket seems good and the brakes are feeling good.
thanks to virus and all that put info in here. it was the source that i used for my duct project.

do you have any other pictures of the vents?

The saga continues, the hawks overheating cooked 5 of 12 piston seals. 3 weren't brittle yet but very deformed, 2 were falling apart. Going to see how long I can get them to last and I guess go with the Racing Brake rebuild kit with stainless pistons. Hoping to let it go til the winter but I will monitor it closely. Damn it.

I'm just concerned that the pop rivets would rip-out over time from flex and bouncing.

6000 plus miles, 6 track days and plenty of spirited street driving. The fasteners are not coming out as they were designed for automotive applications. The extraction force is fairly high
