I'll research the struts further. Thanks for the info.

Fabrication skills are not a problem. I work in an engineering shop that dabbles in just about everything. I think we have a theoretical physicist somewhere if memory serves. I have a set of seats in mind already, and there's a universal adapter kit for them that will work with the stock metro bolt holes. I think that part of the project is going to come down to a weight comparison.

Sorry, when it comes to some things, I'm one of the "gotta see it to believe it" types. The pulse plugs fall into that realm, and I couldn't beat free.
