This is funny, but related. During the restoration of my Alfa, previous owner had stacked about 6 washers under the seat mounts in an attempt to raise the seat.
It resulted in the right rear drivers seat mount pressing itself through the floor, tearing away the metal from the side of the transmission tunnel.
I don't know how short, fat, and odd the previous owner was, but he broke the seat, painted the car yellow, and broke the rear springs. lol
