I'm currently trying to find some racing seats to install, which will negate needing to go up there anyway...

The wife is cool with me getting some, and I'm hoping I can find some Sparco Milano Prestige seats for the right price.... I also need to determine if they can be made to accomodate the five point harness with the anti-submarine strap...

Thanks for the check-up...

Those are nice! My first thought was you don't need flip seats, but you can still use back seat for baggage on trips, so it'll come in handy

And on longer trips, the wife could slide hers forward and still tilt them back and the front bolster is adjustable... Etc...and baggage in the back seat is going to be necessary since there will at times be two 15 or 20 lb nitrous bottles and possibly my battery, since I may do away with the wheel well to install a chute frame...
