Has anyone on the FoT list tried the Kirkey 41301V seat in the TR-6?
This Kirkey part umber has a vinyl cover and what looks like padding in the
photographs, so I am hoping that it will not be too uncomfortable for the
occasional street drive.  What ever I put in to replace my tattered Corbeaus
will need to provide lots of lateral support, because my car is primarily used
for auto-X.

I tried fitting Corbeau Clubmans before going with the 914 seats.
I found that the shoulder "ears" (or whatever you call those
things that keep your upper body in place) fouled with the B post.
The only way around it was to move the seat inwards towards the
driveshaft tunnel (which increases the offset to the pedals) or
bending the "ear" to provide clearance.  I did not want to own
the seats, so I did not do the bendy-thing.

There is zero chance of fitting Corbeau Clubmans (I tried the
style - there is a larger version for those with larger posteriors)
in both driver and passenger locations, again because of interference
between the "ears".

Kirkey aluminum seats fit well, but are lousy for those 500-mile days.
