yeh well apologies to those that want big fat seats, im really leaning toward fpv GT seats(not gtp)style except more physically huggy.. ie they're as tight to sit in as the hsv etc ones, but they look like gt seats(maybe tiny bit more sholder flare)..the shape of em will sit nicely in the EF/EL interior.. i like the gtp/senator seats also, but they're too big and tall(ie they're wide all the way up past the start of the headrest. to have that ud want to have the entire interior matching/flowing like having the rear seats sculpted to look like subdued sports buckets) hence the gt seats, it will match better and not be too out of place..

anyones thoughts on this?

and yeh for me its about funds aswell which is why im sayin now but not doin anything for like a few months. and even then there will be plenty of time to gather some coin together.

just like that(note- i not gonna do the nut-sack pad like fpv do) except no fancy stitching, and the EL ghia or something factory headrests instead.. all for the sake of being custom, but looking stock.

gotcha. this just be me working out a design with a trimmer, and gettin a seat and allowing others to benefit from my time but going to where i had it done and saying do that for me too please(and thusly allow these fine gentlement to add input prior to my seat design being finalised)

reason for the thread was to see if anyone would even bother, coz then i can tell the trimmer if theres more coming and maybe save myself some coin.

Good Work Jamie :) I agree mate, the senator seats are very fat and wouldn't go to well in a 90s interior. I think you have the right idea. Those gt seats do look great, not overdone like the gt-p seats. If they we could get them similar with a bit more side and bottom bolster to hug ya some more they would be ideal i think. And as for the headrest i'm happy to keep the xr ones :D

boom boom ^

i was told on the weekend that the rails are the same width from EF onward or something.. so it may be easy to adapt GT seats.. but that may be more pricey than custom ones.. plus i was hoping to retain all the EF/EL lumbar/recline knobs

I'd be happy with GT or GT-P seats. Good idea Clampy.

Whats the difference between the standard and the 'P'?

gonna visit a trimmer joint tomoz.. lookin 5-700 burks depending on material ie leather or not. but we see about that, since the back will likely not need to be touched if you keepin original look.

What do you mean the back not being touched?
Are you referring to the shape?
