Well, its been a while since I had a chance to work on the car. I’ve been doing drywall in the house, disassembling a broken lawnmower, several work related tasks, and various holiday season activities.

I tried on several different seats of various sizes and finally settled on a 16” / 20o VS RoadRace Halo seat. I eventually intent to make a custom foam insert using two part foam from pegasus auto racing. Particularly, after I get rid of some of the ballast around my midsection Posted Image.

Sweet! Okay, I know it's lame to be the first to comment on my own blog...but, all I had to do was cut&paste from my external blog to this blog editor. All the formatting and links came across untouched...even the stupid smiley.

At the moment, I can't find a Wordpress plugin that will cross-post between wordpress and ip.blog...I can do this manually without much effort.

do they make foam for fat people? otherwise i need a new seat lol :(

I have a 16" and it's way too tight of a squeeze. Then again, I'm pretty 'big boned.'

Thanks, Rich.

Andrew, Lol....I don't think the foam knows. Even still, I'm sure there are gaps that could be filled. Look at it this way, you won't need as much foam! Posted Image
