Thanks, I'm a mechanic in the Utah Army National Guard.

That's a great idea, it would be nice to sit in a few and see what is going to actually work for me before buying. I'm kind of picky about lumbar support and the angle my legs sit at from the back to the front of the seat.

 

No problem! I've always looked up to all you guys in the military, it's a tough job! Even if you're a person that doesn't get deployed you still have to be so strict with your time, go to a million drills, move around a bucnh, etc. Salute to you sir!

 

and yeah I am pretty pick as well. Plus, I'm not even super tall and it's hard to find a seat that fits me and the Z, so always a good idea to sit in them beforehand! Are you looking at recline able or fixed back?

I'm not opposed to fixed if it's comfortable, but most likely a recliner. My car is ment to be a street car when it's done, there is not really any racing organizations up here around Logan, and going in a straight line doesn't appeal as much as canyon carving or road coursing to me.

I plan on some form of a cage, and definitely stitch weld the body, frame rail reinforcements and strut tower bars. So I'll need to figure out seats before I get to the cage building stage, but that's a ways down the road. Need to finish piecing the drivetrain together first so I know what needs to be done for mounts, ride height, etc.

That makes sense, definitely good to get it out of the way first! They've got some good seats at reasonable prices for sure!

I've started a VLOG as an experiment to myself, but from now on I'll continue with the detailed picture and writeups but also include these! Let me know what you guys think would make these more interesting.
