Very nice seats!
Do they use the factory rails?

Contact Smitty (forum member) for pricing, as I don't know if the fluctuations with the exchange rate might affect pricing. I ordered these in mid-February and I believe he said this was the last pair in stock but he is ordering more. I have a 34" waist and the seats fit great, but I don't know how big a person they would accommodate.Very nice. I hope you don't mind me asking, but how much? Did you have to wait long for the seats? How large is your waist?
I'm guessing that GRP is Gel coated Fiberglass...Did you get the "B5 Back GRP Race Car Seat with Dinamica Suede Trim"?
Any idea what "GRP" stands for?
2nd, would like to see how they fit with my wide ass if possible. Look a bit tougher to get in and out as well, but could be wrong. Then again I'm not as limber as I used to be so that might be the problem, not the seats. lolThey look great. When are you heading out to H2R next? I'm very interested.
Ugh. US Customs seems to have it out for carbon fiber imports. They inspect every single shipment of mine that contains a scrap of it. When I receive an order, it's typically a couple of pallets with large boxes stacked on each. They charge me to transport the pallets to the Customs facility, they charge me for storage until they get around to inspecting them, they charge me to inspect them and they even charge me for the fuel they use to transport them to and from their facility. On top of that, all they do is cut two of the four bands holding the lid on the top box, pry open a corner of box's lid and close it....not including shipping and import taxes.
I will probably go to the Houston Tour (solo event) the first weekend in April. Not sure if you're near the Gulf Greyhound Park, but swing by if you can.2nd, would like to see how they fit with my wide ass if possible.

I hope to get out to H2R either this Saturday or the following weekend. I'll let you know. I also need to get a couple things done to the car at Lotus of San Antonio, so I'll be down there one day this month.They look great. When are you heading out to H2R next? I'm very interested.
Hey guys, I also got the tillett b5 seats from Smitty, I plan on posting a full review soon but here is a preview:
How comfortable are they for daily driving?Those seats look familiar! Now that I've had mine for a few weeks and a chance to test at the track, I'm very pleased with the difference over the stock Elise seats. The Tillett design really does hold you in place.
One note for others installing the Tilletts--the seats are very sensitive to small adjustments in the height adjusting holes in the brackets. My driver's seat was originally leaning back too much for my taste. I pulled the seat out last weekend, moved the back adjustment up one notch and it solved the seating position. I also discovered that you can't lower the front settings or you'll end up binding the seat slider release mechanism. The seats also come with an assortment of spacing washers to help set the side-to-side position relative to the seat rails (and the center console). I think Smitty has suggestions on positioning these spacers, but I'd be glad to offer advice to future installers as well.
