I just got a set of tracks to install seats from a 96 cobra. I really want to use the seat tracks from the cobra since the drivers seat is electric. However in order to do that I am going to have to completely remove the seat riser. the question is- is the seat riser a structural piece of the flooring or can it just be removed?

thanks

Yes, definitely. The latest M Monthly shows how to remove the riser for modification. It MUST be in the car, though for "floorpan stiffness and structural integrity".

mellowyellow is quite correct. DO NOT eliminate the seat risers unless you compensate for the loss of strutural integrity. and even then i wouldnt remove them. unless i was building a full tube frame race car.
