Default RV8 seat choices.

Hi guys/gals.any suggestions for seats? I've just bought an 8 and the currents seats are racing type bucket seats, nice and comfy but I'm 6 ft so looking at something slimmer, suggestions?

Default did my heated seats. The front seat comes with an additional wedge that can easily included/excluded.

Still loving them.

Classic Aero Designs did my custom seats. Jeremiah Webster spent a lot of time with me, sent me fabric and leather samples and I'm very happy with the results. Plus they're a VAF advertiser. See their ad on the left margin...
