Those 2 braces are re-moveable, as I think the OEM version is too soft at that place.

Same size as Lotus seat.
Perfect mate with OEM brackets and seat rail, just plug and go, bolt tight with all the original bolts.
Can have OEM 3 Points and 6 Points same time :X
Price, you suggest.

It is twin skin up to 9 layers.
Pre-preg CF + Kevlar.
High Temp Auto-clave, not Vac-bag room temp stuff

Looks awesome!

Will you be able to offer upholstery as well?

Maybe something like the Exige Scura?

Sorry dude, I was so business in this couple weeks.

It is 8 layer CF and 1 layer Kevlar, 3.8Kg

Will run another batch to see how much I can cut the weight.

It is USD950.00 without shipping.

Wow, price is right if you can get the weight down. There's another new seat player on the market that's a bit more expensive ($1250 each); I think a bit lighter around 5-6 lbs. Also compatible with both stock 3-pt and race harnesses.

Cut the Kevlar, then it should be lighter, As I can't find any pre-preg Kevlar.

3.8Kg = 8.4lb and stiff
8.4lb/9*8= 7.5lb
Reverie is 2.5Kg = 5.5lb, but much thinner.

My Technocrafts (kevlar in front/CF only back) are only 6lbs and are pretty darn stiff. Not sure their manufacturing process though. They don't have much in the way of bolstering though, and are expensive.

I have to say, I wasn't sure of your products at first, but your latest projects have me very impressed.

Also wondering, is it $950 for just the bare shell? Do we have to locate our own padding?
