How to Install Racing Seats

      You said they where glued? Couldn’t you have heated them up? To help loosen the glue and maybe reuse instead of destroying them?

    Disconnecting the battery will not necessarily stop the airbags from being deployed. Modern cars usually have a capacitor that stores energy needed for things like the airbags. Airbags can also be triggered by static electricity, believe it or not. Just be careful out there guys, if you’re not in the right position that airbags are designed to go off at (sitting in your seat), it could easily prove fatal. Stay safe.

    the way you have the seatbelt installed in 17:45 can potentially be very dangerous, the buckle may rest against your hip in case of a crash. This has been an issue when seatbelts were a new requirement, and manufacturers didn´t care that much. When you crash your hip might be broken in such a way that the artery that runs through your hip gets sliced open, causing you to bleed to death in as little as 3-5 minutes

    If you use a medium drill then you will wear the large drill more than necessary you should only need 1 or maybe 2 drills as long as the maximum size of the small drill is no larger than the web of the large drill

    Did you use a hydro lock with your e-brake system so you can park on a hill or just to park your stang? Nevermind I forgot you kept the stock ebrake. But did you consider using one?
