Home made lowers (nice)
Custom seat (made by a local guy)

The 2 main bolts are 8-1.25 x 20mm that hold it down. You'll probably need (2) 5/16 flat washers and 2 split lock washers to go along with them.

If your 4 bolts that go into either side seem a little short just take them to the hardware store and get them 5mm longer. Not quite sure what size those are.

I suggest replacing the side bolts with Allen heads. Makes life easier installing ....

I should have done that, but no, I went and got regular bolts. Whenever the next time is that I have a need to remove the rack, for whatever reason, I'll swap over to Allen heads. It'll make getting to the lower bolts much easier.
