I finally found the 74 beetle of my dreams, unfortunately at 6'3" I'm a little on the larger side for the car. Does anyone know of any tips or tricks to moving the seats a little further back and gaining some leg space. Any advice or part companies or anything would be tremendously helpful. Thanks

I know on the early cars people used to cut the seat mounts off and slide them back but you have to check if you can do that with the seat rails being welded to the side of the floor I’d see if there’s any space between the back seat mounts and the end of the rails if so you might be able to move the pedestal back or see about swapping to a different style seat
