    Fiero based LP640 - Seat Height

    Hi Guys,

    Anyone have any suggestions on lowering the seat height on the Fiero based kits?

    I'm about 6' 3" and I have a G28 kit. The aftermarket seats with no tracks still cause my head to be about 2 - 3 inches above the windshield frame (good thing it's a roadster).

    I'm assuming that I could "scoop out" the foam seating portion of the seats or get another set of seats that has a thinner seat back which would cause them to sit back further back. I suppose that I could also do the more drastic measure and lower the seat pans (sounds like a lot of work).

    I noticed on my friends real LP640 roadster that the seating portion of the seats dips down quite a bit than most normal set of seat do however the pans didn't appear to be any lower on his car than they do on the Fiero.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    No expert ,but I am going to try old 914 Porsche, cheap on eBay,came with tracks, sits low and they are Fiberglas so they should be easy to modify.

    cut the floor pan in the seat area an drop it down 3.5" an reinforce it from underneath this will also depend on the rim size used for additional height on the overall cars height AN OR remove the tracks an bolt right to the floor
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    wow! Id feel like I was nearly sitting on the street lol, Anyone know anything about the real "cockpit" like where the driver sits verses our fiero donors? If the oem sitting position is in fact lower then that would be a cool upgrade...
