Hello all,
I have two spare Elise seats here. I don't want to sell them, don't know why, just don't.
But while they are sitting here I thought I would build a pair of racing consoles to play the new F1 2020 game. I have the steering wheels and such.
A while back I bought a set of seat tracks to mess around with my Elise Sport 190 so I also have those.
What I don't have are the bolts to mount the sides of the seats to the seat tracks.
Does anyone know the bolt size. whether metric or standard, and length? of the 4 bolts that bolt the standard Elise seat to the seat tracks?

Thanks

Tony V

M8 x 12 button head

All the seat bolts and nuts are M8 except the seat belt.
Seat belt bolts are 7/16.

I have no need for the seat rail bolts that go into the floor as I am not mounting it in a car. I know that those are metric as I use an M6 allen wrench to screw them down.
The side bolts are what I need. There are two sizes on the side of the seats. They are different. Is one of those 7/16 and if so, what is the other?

Then there is the threaded bolt under the seat that bolts to the seat track. I just found a nut that fits that, looking for another in my box of nuts.

I dont see any diagram. I found some here but they are too long. The smaller ones for the upper bolt will be easy to find I think. The larger ones, they seem to be usual size for fitting seat belts. Fine thread, about 3/8. Is that M8? seems bigger than that. If I cant find them locally I will have to order them, I just dont know what to order.

That's odd, the link goes straight to DeRoure's site with the seats and then has the bolt sizes in there. Hopefully you can see this image:

As mentioned, I think you are referring to 7, 8, and 9 above:

Is that what you are after?
