Sorry, my description may not have been the best. The high back GT6 seats I
have, have a panel flush with the forward facing surface of the top hoop.
Therefore, the foam would have to be a flat piece. The 70 Spitfire may have
a panel, but it is centred inside the tubular frame for the top hoop.
Therefore, the replacement foam kits have the top foam thicker in the
centre than at the edges to fill up the recess. There may be other subtle
differences as well but, IMHO if you have spent the money on correct
upholstery, foams, straps, and diaphragms, you want the right frames to
make it all fit well.
