I would have been laying down with my chin on my chest to get my head in under the roof with any type of store bought seats so I had to make my own. now Im seating like you would in a kayak with a back rest it is very comfortable but I am seating right on the floor with 1" of foam under me. If you are a thinner person Frans new seats should do the trick you just have to mount them as low as possible and with what Fran had mentioned above you may want to go with the extended tall guy option just to be sure.
Cheers,

Re: Grant's SL-C Build tread

Here are some pic's of the cold air box I've been working on, its not done yet but it will give you an idea of how its going to work. This set up should work with any car with a street tail as it uses the two back air scoops to ram air in to the lower box mounted under the rear clam. The two setrab oil coolers are now rubber mounted using my original bracket design but I had to come up with two more mounts to keep them horizontal. So I tied them into the new air box mounts as you will see in the pic's.
Also shown in the pic's is a upper Fiberglass panel that I worked out to be glass in to the underside of the rear clam that will seal to the lower box when closed. I will be splitting the air scoops in half on each side not yet done or shown to allow the upper panel to direct air down over the oil coolers and out the back as well.
Hope this all make sense lol.

Re: Grant's SL-C Build tread

LOL OK Ken recently split with the old lady of 13 yrs so that kick the crap out of my bank account as well as everything else. I have my house tore to shreds doing some much needed renos as I don't have to worry about having to do things the way she wanted them anymore LOL so thats where my last 3 months went. I have been doing a little tinkering on the car, I have my interior pretty much built and should look pretty good it was a ton of work over 150 hrs of fiberglassing, seats fit me like a glove. Built some speaker boxes for the side foot wells that look very much like something Pagani would have done, machined my own custom speaker grills they match my rims, design and laser cut a custom hood badge and ordered my Dash commander from Troy. Been sitting back reading everyones threads and blogs Learning from their trials. I have changed the color of how I was going to finish the car four times now lol and have finally decided and have picked the colors should be a real head turner. I'll post a few pic'd here soon I just have to finish putting my Bathroom back together lol.

Re: Grant's SL-C Build tread

Heres some pic's the Hood badge still needs to be set in the clear resin, The speaker boxes are just about done just need to paint them. The interior needs the bottom's glassed in and they will be done. I have made adjustable head rest for them just haven't glassed the adjusters into them yet. The filler pic's on both side of the seat will house most of my electronic's fuss boxes, stereo amps, Etc.... the speaker grills I still need to curve them slightly and them weld them to the outter rings.

Grant should be the lead designer at Pagani.

You should make copies of these to sell to the rest of us.....lol
