Default Today's Craigslist Acquisition

Today was my day off, so I was whoring for parts on craigslist as usual when I found two momo seats w/ cushions for 100/each. Bingo.

Now ...should I give scott my old ones for free.. or use them as interior furniture? haha.

I seriously hate you man, ****...

EDIT: on second thought, if they aren't wide then my fat *** wouldn't fit.

I had a deal like that around january, guy backed out saying the cat pissed all over them. Might have been a good thing. Oh well. Two of those momos exactly like the ones you have, i was pissed.

Retail is $299 each, I think it's a fair deal. I should be able to get the Sparco Sprints for $225 or so, but still that deal is badass....so many seats in our area on craigslist for a good price.

What do you guys think. I'm 6'2-6'3 with a 32" waist (seat width), only wear a 34" inseam though so my legs aren't super long. I actually like the miata seat tipped up a bit and a click forward from the furthest position back.

Think the start would be a good seat for me if bolted on the floor (like savington) to get head clearance with the tallest rollbar possible?

Ah screw rails, I'll just make them fit to OEM rails most likely. I did that with my previous seats. As far as fitment, for those of you that have seen me, I'm kind of a thick chested frame 5'8 190ish lbs. I bought these without considering that fact. I took them home and sat in them, and pretty much could not get out. The waist and leg fit is great, and they are comfortable, except for the fact it feels like I have two fists stuck in my lats (the upper back muscles).
