    Should I mount my seat on rubber bobbins?

    I have rebuilt the frame which I attach my seat to, because I wasn't happy with how it looked. But I need to have it raised slightly to clear the chassis mounting bolts on the floor. Could I use some short rubberised bobbins to give it clearance, and at the same time provide bit of anti-vibration?

    I'd say no,as the weight of the seat + driver would exceed the sheer strength of rubber bobbins. Get some spacers made up or use several steel washers to raise the seat frame.

    I agree. Steel or ali spacers are the way to go.

    No, pretty sure it would be an mot failure too as seat would not be securely mounted.

    if you find a metro in a breakers they should be ashamed of themselves for not having it crushed the minute it came in the yard!
