Sparco r100 seats

Just wondering if anyone is using these? How do u like them? What size are you and how do they fit? Are they holding up as far as durability? Thanks

I pulled the seats out of my 79 and checked with a few local firms to have them re-foamed, and covered. Quotes were $300 per seat a one shop, and $550 per seat at the next place... Don't know how they keep their doors open when you can get new / better seats for less. The Sparco R100 looks like a great option!

For now, (little ashamed to admin) I'm tossing on a set of cheap-o slip covers from Costco! on sale this months!

AZ sun has destroyed everything on my car to include the entire upholstery.

There's a race shop not too far from me that carries Sparco seats, so I was able to go sit in some. The R100s were very underwhelming. No real shape to them, it was like sitting on a flat park bench with a little bit of side bolstering. I ended up with some Corbeaus instead.

'89 GT convertible, N/A 357W, MM front susp w/425# coil-overs and Koni D/As, MM TA/PB rear setup (Koni Yellows, 390-430# springs), Stoptech 332mm / 12" Baers, MM 6 point rollbar, Maier 1.5" flared fenders & quarters, 18x9.5" front/18x10.5" rear Enkei RPF-1s (street), 18x10" CCW C-10s (track), etc...
