Driver seat upgrade

I've changed the original wooden wedges (high back low front) from the driver seat with wooden blocks (same hight back and front).
The seat now reclines more backward and I sit lower in the car.
No more cushions needed to support my back.

I couldn't remove the wedges because there is a crossbar behind the seat with the chassis number on.

I took the wooden supports out of the current car to lower my side. They were replaced with thinner, short blocks front and back. The only issue is the seat adjuster bar is close to the chassis cross member and my fingers get jammed in. I have put a loop of cord round it to act as a pull strap instead. Whilst doing it I replaced the rear hex head bolts with socket heads as they sit in the seat runner channel and now easier to remove if needed, I had to use a small Stillson that fitted in the channel until replaced. Stilson was a good fit and held the bolt steady.
