if I was smart I would of just sold the c7 and for a c5z or something

but I really really enjoy the c7 so thatís worth something

Seat centers nicely with steering wheel.

Fitting seat back braxe as required with a metal seat. Makes for zero movement, very solid.

Decided to trim the carpet. Makes it easier to position seat and get as low as possible.

Seat bottom can sit a little lower now.

Floor pan lip is more prominent in the C7 than my C5s were. Removing carpet allows seat rail to sit up against it and ensure youíre not on top of it.

Fits cleanly.

Thanks... It's going to stay street legal until we get a convertible for the street, then we'll see. I'm very intrigued by Spec Vette, but nobody around here doing that and I don't like the direction they've taken of late doing "spec" aero bits from one guy's shop. Spec Vette should have zero aero, zero hood vents. Stock car with brakes, suspension, cage, go.
