[DeTomaso] Dropped Pans?

Sorta makes you wonder how many could have simply removed the seat rails to
get the drop they needed without cutting the pans.

The simplest way is, do your seats adjust position fore and aft? If so, the
pans are likely not dropped. Most dropped-pan setups cut the floor under the
seat to make a metal pocket, dropping them 1-2" while not cutting the
stamped crossmembers in the floor. That effectively prevents the seat from
travelling back & forth. Strangely, many cars with dropped pans and thus no
fore and aft adjustment, still keep the adjustment rails which RAISE the
seats about 1" above the floor. FWIW- J DeRyke
