    sport seats

    hi opel fans,
    I've just bought my opel GT and I want to start the interiour,
    (the eninge and exteriour just came back from sprayers and mechanincs so)

    my original GT seats are heavely worn down, and I want to give the inside a more sporty look. I want to place new seats in them,
    recaro's or sparco's

    but the thing is could it be that most seats are to wide?

    does anyone have a list of which modern sportseats fit?

    jeroen

    If it's Recaro, you want, try these:
    eBay.be: 2 Recaro Sportsitze Spezialist M Defender T3T4 T5 Leder (object 110614325829 eindtijd 18-feb-11 23:48:46 CET)
    These are similar to what comes in Manta B series and are narrow enought to fit in the GT floor pans.

    I'll see if I can get a dealer around here who can see if they fit before I buy them ofc

    If I remember correctly the max width that will fit is 19" at the seat.

    I've seen at least one GT with Pontiac Solstice seats and they looked and fit great. The Solstice has very comfortable and supportive seats and have mechanical adjustments for seat back position and forward / back adjustments so no need to fiddle with electrical work.
