Racing seats!

update image

Here’s the very latest project (hasn’t even made my build thread yet!). I managed to trade for a set of bright red and black suede racing seats. They’re off-brand but about the same weight as the FC RX-7 seats I had already installed, in good shape, and comfortable. Fitting seats with such large bolsters into an FB is a challenge though! The driver’s side rubs the parking brake, the passenger side sits funny (I have to adjust the mounts soon), and they both block access to the seatbelt with the door closed. That should give you an idea of just how small this car is! Luckily the seats had the same track width as the stock RX-7 seats so I mearly had to wallow out most of the holes on the RX-7 tracks to bolt them right in.
