A More Comfortable Seat
Seats on MGBs are too flat. If the front is raised slightly they are more comfortable and the back is positioned better.
Remove each seat in turn and discard the wooden runner (1/4" thick) and substitute a wedge-shaped piece of hardwood, approximately 21" long by 1-1/4" (to 1-1/2") wide, and tapering from 1/4" to 3/4". Drill holes to match runner about 1/2" in diameter. Press in short pieces of 1/2" tubing, aluminum or steel, and bolt seats back as before. The front bolt will need to be longer, a 1/4" x 28 tpi bolt and 1-1/2" should do.
