Re: [DML] Re: Raising the seat height

I'd guess there's a pretty good chance none of us are physicists so deciding 
whether  the studs have a higher or lower shear capacity than the fiber 
glass floor's ability to withstand the studs trying to rip themselves out 
first is really just food for conversation. The Delorean seat belts are 
anchored independent of the seat itself and hopefully would reign in the 
load in the event of a frontal crash. There isn't much room for the seat to go backward in a rear end crash. With that in mind I'm still comfortable 
adjusting the seat, with-in reason, by using washers for shims.
