Has anyone used spacers on their sidemounts to mount their bucket seat to a floor rail ?
I purchased a set of recaro sidemounts for my Bride Zeta 3, the side mounts fit the seat but the side mounts dont line up with the floor rail due to the seat being too narrow. Would it be safe if I used longer bolts and larger spacers to mount the side mount further out to reach the floor rail ?

The recaro sidemounts already come with spacers so I will assume a larger spacer wouldnt be an issue but thought I'd ask to see if anyone has done that on here ?

It should be OK as long as the spacers aren't to big,
Make sure you use 12.9 (high tensile) bolts
