Rubber Mounted Seats

Has anyone tried/had any experience of doing this,I've had some back hurting very hard landings and wondered if this might be a solution,thought of using the rally style bucket seats with side mounting alloy plates with car engine/gearbox type flat rubber mounting sandwiched in between,not sure if this would pass scrutineering?,any advice appreciated.Nic

I used on a rear bench seat some good size rubber door stops with a stainless bolt running through them and 3 stainless washers on each never had a problem over 5 years hard boating and obviously has more give than a solid mounting

Good idea. How much would this cost, and where would you but it from?

I need to investgate a rubber mounting which for strength will need to be either a gearbox or engine mounting I would think,my idea was to use the Alloy side mounting plates with a say 3" alloy angle bolted to the floor with the rubber mounting between so the mounting would be stressed in linier fashion not compressed.If I come up with a good mounting I'l let you know
