Hi, I have a Tillett B5 as my drivers seat, fitted easily, plenty of room and nice seat but is heavy, about 6 kilos. I also have in the passengers side a Tony Thompson 26R wide bucket seat. It is very light and again even easier to fit. Not a high back though.
cheers

Hi

If you need an FIA approved seat there is the Cobra Racer 7 which fits in the Elan and Motordriveseats ( see business and manufactures section ) also make a FIA seat that fits.

I have slim (passenger) and not so slim (drivers) 26r clone seats... Not high back but good fit and look appropriate.
