I should start off by saying you guys here are great! You have been a real help with my project!
I have been kinda lurking here for a little while now, and have never really had to post anything to find an answer for any problems I have had till now.
I have finished getting the new floor pans into my coupe, and I am getting ready to install the seat risers. The original risers had a pretty stout looking support on the bottom, connecting the front and back sides. My reproductions don't have these on them. Should I remove the old supports, and weld them into my new risers? Or should I weld them in as is?
Thanks again for all of guys help,

I don't know for sure, but would those reinforcements be there for the seat tracks? I would put them on if it is not too much trouble. These unibodies need all the support they can get. See what others think. I was just guessing. good luck. tp.

I know what you are talking about, my new seat risers did not have the supports as well. The guy I bought them from restores mustangs for a living and I asked him if I should weld the supports back in. He said there was no need to. So I did not, everything seems to be fine without the supports weleded to the new seat risers.

I'm not sure they really need to be there either, the risers are pretty beefy. I went ahead and cut them out of the old ones though, so I might as well go ahead and do it now.
Thanks for the info!
