Seats went up for leathering a few weeks back, but the runners were in a bad state. I decided to get them powder coated but needed to dismantle them in order to do so. I had to grind down the little bumps on the top hat section parts in order to remove the rollers and plastic carriers. Then I drilled out a 3.5mm hole in those parts so that i can add an m3 nut and bolt to hold the runners in place when reassembling. Unfortunately i had to grind off the pin too so that i could remove the pivot arm, this I shall replace with a nut and bolt, if there's room. It felt a bit of a shame removing the pin as it was an original neat solution. But it had to be done to get a good result, i'll try and source a company that can redo this but I'm not holding out much hope in finding one. ?

Mmmmm new runners from the powder coaters........alright not new, but they look good don't they?
I have also washed the plastic inserts that the bearings where in and treated myself to a full set of new bearings, which cost a pretty penny, this car is emptying my wallet very quickly )-:
Anyway now I've got to remember how these went together, although I'm going to leave it til the winter (it's an indoor's job), got plenty of other outdoor jobs to be getting on before the weather turns too cold! Onwards and upwards....
