Default Moving seat further back

So Iím 6í5 and I fit, but would love to know if anyone has been able to move the seat farther back and lower on the standard rails? My right leg is just pressed up against the e brake and itís not terrible but would really like to go a bit Lower and further back.

I don't know about getting it lower, but a machine shop, like a custom motorcycle shop, may be able to help. I'm pretty sure they'll ask you to take the seat out and rail off (or you can snag one off ebay so you can drive her while you wait). I am fairly sure its a riveted assembly? They may summarize the rivets need drilled and reset, ...or if its even possible? A good shop will have a 20 ton press to repress new rivets.

You should be able to locally source another assembly here.... Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market ...and run down a pick it up. But I'd find a shop first willing to do the work.
