    you need headrests too remember.

    also solid backed single piece seats won't work due to the seatbelt position at the top

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    if you are really tight, MX5 seats might fit.

    Ashley at Classic Cobra Interiors is your man:07917 573637.

    He made my seats for my AK, beautiful quality with headrests, straight through IVA.

    I will also recommend Ashley, awesome work on my seats, he also fitted heated pads to back and base, making winter driving a pleasure!!

    High back GRP one piece seats will work as long as the seatbelts go around the headrest and not through the triangle holes.

    I'm not tight, honest, it's just the lack of budget that's holding me back.

    Just about to take the angle grinder to mine.

    I think your main concern was the Rules....
    I was in the same position just a few weeks ago with regards the upper seat bent anchorage point.
    My seats were a very reasonable £200 delivered.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the info, it is the rules (IVA) that makes things so difficult when purchasing items for the build,there are so many conflicting stories and the interpretation of the rules is something else.
