GRID - 1" SQUARES
HOLE FOR FIXING SCREW
The location of these are not dimensioned as they seem to vary on individual cars. Transfer existing holes in support rails to new floorboards with a drill or transfer punch from underside. Locate new holes visually from the plans.
HOLE FOR SEAT SLIDE BOLT
Click here to open the PDF file. Print these at 1:1 on letter size paper for 1/4 size prints and transfer the information by hand, or have a print shop print pages 2 to 6 at 400% for full size patterns. Full size prints will be 34" x 44".
Notice: For rear floor boards immediately above and below. -- When installing Competition Deluxe Seats, screws for the seat mounting will be in different location.

"Location of the slide rail bolts in the floor by referring to page 29 in Todd Clarke's booklet 'MGA Owner’s Information & Technical Guide'.
The only different dimensions are:
1. The 4-1/4 inches from rear edge is 5-3/8 inches for Deluxe seats.
2. The 4 inch from tunnel side is 4-1/8 inches for Deluxe seats, although this difference may just be manufacturing inaccuracy.
3. The spacing between rails of 12 inches is 11-7/8 inches.
[Additional note From Barney]: That puts the holes for C/D seats about 1-inch farther forward. Beyond that, another 1/8-inch discrepancy one way or another may be irrelevant. In particular, I'm pretty sure the C/D seats have the same 12-inches between slide rail bolts.
