I'm looking at ways of moving / mounting the front seats further back to give more legroom - not worried about compromising space in the back.

However, as I would like to be able to restore the car to original at a later time, I don't want to go drilling more holes in the floorpan, nor cutting and welding the seat frame. Anyone done this or have any ideas?

Thanks

Geoff

I've had the same thoughts of late too, Geoff.
I'm 6'2", arthritic and I could do with some extra. So I'm keen to see the answers to this.
I remember my days of Mini Cooper S's with their Paddy Hopkirk seat extender brackets for us tallies. Pity that there's not something available "over the counter" to bolt on.
