[DML] Re: Raising the seat height



This is an effective way to get height and adjust the angle of the 
bottom seat cushion too - however, I would recommend you use washers 
that are the WIDE ones like you will find under the car when you take 
off the nuts (nearly an inch across). The wide washers minimize the 
flexing of the fiberglass around the hole in the fiberglass for the 
fastners of the seat. Use them top and bottom.
