Thank you, Larry. I will arrive on Sunday for the week, so I will have plenty of time to find you and explore paint schemes, panel layouts, etc. Hope to meet you there.

Default Classic Aero Seats...

I just received mine a couple of weeks ago. The quality is great and the company was wonderful to work with! I highly recommend them! Don't count on cutting down the 12 week lead time though. They told me 12 weeks and they took 12 weeks on the nose. At least they have a good solid handle on their production scheduling.

Default Headrests - yes or no

I'm ordering seats/interior from Classic Aero. My biggest decision is whether or not to get the headrests.

Thoughts?

Pros/Cons?

Thanks

Default Headrests

I spoke to Stoney about his headrests and he did not like them. He said they didnít add any comfort and made it harder to access the baggage compartment (at least thats what I remembered he said).

I echo Rob's comment, while I don't have experience to judge the comfort level, it does hinder access to the baggage area and the added weight was not worth the good looks. I have ordered mine without.

As far as the leather goes, I had it in my 7 and loved it. It held up very well and did not find any issues with the heat, although mine was always hangered.

My 2 cents.

Thanks for replies - I'll go no headrests. Confirms my general thoughts.

My seats are getting pretty worn and was thinking of upgrading. What about the operational heat factor of leather. IOW sitting on them when plane has been on the ramp for two hours in Texas 90 plus. Or pattern work on hot sun filled day, hot on the backside at all. If itís like my Olds and I forget to prop seat up while in grocery store, my wife would rather walk home than sit on those sweat machines. Thoughts.

Default Headrest

I was thinking about ordering my seats with the headrest, 2 reasons: 1) looks 2) comfort with the shoulder restraints not rubbing on my neck.

Will the headrest prevent the shoulder straps from rubbing on your neck or is it a non-issue?
