Kirkey seat in a clubmans

Has anybody ever tried one of these seats in a clubmans i currently have my Phantom up for sale and this is one of the reasons why i just can't get comfortable and I really do like the car and would like to keep it, i have tried a fair few single seater seats in it with no joy.

I haven't tried a bead/reasin kit yet due to the cost and if the outcome was the same, I had a kirkey seat in my tiger avon and it was ok

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Cheers

Craig

bag seat is really the only way to go, try loads of cushions and see how you get on with that? you should be able to get comfy with these and if not then you never will.

nice looking car by the way i quite like it.

In my old Clubmans car, I had a kart seat to which I added my own version of a moulded inner with builders foam, worked a treat. I run a plastic kart seat in the single seater and is more than comfortable.....

Tillett B3.5 in our Gibson Nemesis. It's expensive, a tight-fit in the car, but very supportive and pretty comfortable!

I believe Mallock sell a possibly suitable seat.

Failing that, bag seat is cheap but very comfortable, if you want some tips on how to make one give me a shout
