Racing Seat Mounting Brackets

I need help. Ive read through as many of the old threads on this topic without any real answers.
I got racing seats in and fabricated the factory frames a bit to make them fit. Problem, could not retain the slider. This is awful! impossible to mount in the car due to needing to move the seats past the mounting bolts.

The seats actually came with a simple slider system that I really would love to attach and use, but they are only 11". Which is the mounting length of the seats...not the bolts in the car.
Most of the universal brackets I find that I could try attaching, that actually list the length, are only 11". Does our car just have longer than normal mounting frames?

Is there anyone that sells something simple and low profile that can use or retain a slide, or am I going to have to have a lot of trips to the hardware store building my own?

I actually can answer my own question here. For anyone else looking here it is:

"Planted" makes brackets for the Solstice, identical to the sky bolt pattern. They have bottom mount frames, low profile, with attachment points for pretty much any racing seat direct fit or slide bars. They allow you to retain seat belts as well.

They also make side mount seat brackets and spacers, if...for some odd reason, you want or needed to add height.

Thanks for that. I wouldn't mind having racing seats for autocross...our stock seats lack decent bolster support for that.

Ill get a picture of mine up once I get the brackets in and have them properly mounted.
They are Knock off Braum seats I found.
They are FIRM, which I like, a little taller and far more supporting than our stock seats. They cut about 25 pounds off the car too. But they don't look too over the top for a daily driver.

Very happy with them =)
