Seat upgrade ... attempt #2 ...

No, sorry, no real updates yet.  I got the seats all installed, but I haven't taken the car anywhere yet ... still working on the underside and fuel pump issue ... all good, put just need to button everything back up.  Should be going back together here shortly and then I'll be able to say one way or the other.  Sitting in them though, they seem better than the Corbeaus, but the new foam is definitely firmer, which does make them feel a little higher because I don't quite sink down into them the same way I did with the old foam ... if that makes sense.

Makes perfect sense. Wonder if the new foam will break in or if these newer materials stand up better over time. If the latter is the case then we may be back to shaving the base of the lower seat foam for us taller guys. Look forward to your driving impressions down the road.

I've been struggling in the spare time and motivation departments ... doing some clean up work under the car while the fuel tank is out.  Still haven't had a chance to test/enjoy the seats, but hoping I can make a push to get things buttoned up before spring.

Understandable.  My level of motivation is always lower in the winter as I just do not like the cold.  My Corbeau seats are still in the Bird and uncomfortable in height.  Worst case is they will end up in my dad's '69 Fastback as we can rework the floor pan if we have to being it is getting the entire floor pan replaced.  We can hack on the existing one to figure it out and then apply the solution to the new one without the mistakes.

My other "problem" is scope creep ... I just get too far down the rabbit hole.  When I remove something, it just leads to thoughts of replacing and upgrading other things.  I'm sure it's an affliction many of us deal with.

Seats look great though.
