basically take the rail off the standard seat and bolt it back into place. put the bucket seat on top of it and make where the holes need to go. you might have to weld in extra supports as the bucket mightn,t be the same width as the standard seat
If the cross is empty. proceed with caution

I tried that first but I'm 6ft4" and with my helmet on i was pressing on the roof.
I have cut more off and taken a pic bit more adjusting and try it again

Get some cheap steel sidemounts and cut them up so you can position the seat properly then either use the existing bolts or weld them to the runner.
I will get some pictures of mine on a powered rail later.

I have a pair of bride runners for sale.

use a hammer to knock a bulge out in roof :lol:
I've had it before and very annoying you might want to get the rails for them though as they sit a lot lower than the standard Altezza rails, or universal ones wouldn't be too hard to fit
