Annoyed that the Celica floor is asymmetric and making holes trough the floor to get some brackets fixed is a barbaric way to go I've designed custom brackets for my rally ST165 and now i am mass produce them for whoever wants them.
Material is 5 mm hard aluminum according to FIA regulations and one set (6 pieces) compatible with any seat on the market (3 holding standards,either side holding screws or under-seat holding screws) is $100 + shipping (~$20 to US - non priority mail)

In the pictures is the prototype made from thiner aluminium to check all clearances.This one is not for sale.

P.S. I also can include all the screws in the package but i think they weight(shipping cost) more than they cost at a local store

Will check the exact weight of the package including all the bolts and nuts tomorrow.
Basically shipping to US non-priority mail is 11$ for the first Kg + 7$ every additional kg
Meanwhile you can check the skid plates i made : viewtopic.php?f=24&t=28215&p=390992#p390992

hey BNZ,
off topic but how do gt fours go with having the handbrake used? does it damage the drive-train or wear the VC out or anything? always wanted to do a handbrake turn but not game in-case it breaks the transmission

The VC is a forgiving differential but only use the handbrake for short time,just to put the car sideways,don't hold it for longer time and you will avoid wearing the diff.

Hey, just curious if this would work with 7th Gen Celica seats in an ST185?

I've made them using the standards used in motorsport seats...using them on stock heavy seats it's a bad idea and i don't think it works whatsoever

Had that issue too in my ST165, now the problem is gone with those brakets. I can make the holes as low as you want but basically you will be limited by the seat's bottom end reaching the flor

you said these work on the 185 as well, can they work with a slider rail?
