Why check it, when you can take it inside the cabin and call it a baby seat... Or, better yet...Call it an orthopedic seat for your back. ..

4 Edition, CF Seat

Got a 3D scanner, and scanned the previous CF seat, modified a little to have better balance, re-doing the mold again.

Here is some of the preview from Cad file:

Why did you close off the lap belt openings? I think the seatbelt will rub there and fray the belt.

Will these fit in a Dodge Charger? I'm thinking of making my other car lighter too.

You can take off those brackets for normal street.

And bolt on those brackets for 4-5-6 points.

For the rest of other car, you need to install seat rails from Recaro.

It fits Elise, Exige, Evora.

Looks fantastic!

Thinking of K-swapping? Here's an idea of the cost involved.

Very nice looking seats

How much padding did you add? How would you rate the comfort?

Charles, these seats look amazing. Kudos to you.

Just like everyone is asking.... Price shipped to US?
