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

I don't have padding resource at this moment

I have a brand new set in red if anyone is interested but they are not cheap. However I don't think any padding is needed with HKFEVER's seats.


Do it once. Do it right.

But I don't have the pad source, so sad

All the bolts and nuts size and locations are from the OEM CF Seat.

I added brackets for the side boosters.

The seat has a Kelvar layer.

And is much stiffer than OEM CF Seat.

Got different quotes from Fedex, UPS, DHL, TNT, private courier...
- UPS is the highest, USD1229 per seat
- TNT is the cheapest USD399 per seat, USD489 2 seats
