Waiting on tax return money to do some fun stuff to the car, stay tuned.

just saw this discussion on seats.

i had a sparco seat for racing, but still oem passenger seat.
recently i picked up 2 kirkeys for $150. the guy had bought the "intermediates" instead of the "Drag", and they have this really annoying wings that get in the way.

So, i spend some time with the angle grinder and tig welder and cut them down so they look like the drag seats, and i'll modify the cover to match.

Also, for the passenger seat, since there is no minimum weight, i may take the hole saw to it, and lighten it up.

this should drop quite a few pounds from the car.
Don't worry though, a passenger will never sit in it, its just for official competition.

i swap race seats in for auto-x, i much prefer the oem for commuting to work.
