Questions for those who put Solstice or Sky seats into a GT:
  1. Cloth or leather?
  2. How is the fit?
  3. How difficult to install?
1 leather
2 snug
3 easy
4 worth it, yes

Thank you Hans. One more ?: Are the seat belts attached to the seat?
The seat belts that I have are not attached to the seats. However, the inboard seat belt receptacle did come with the seats.

They look great, but they seem a little tall. Do they make it a little tougher to reach or see behind the seats?

Also, the floor where the seats mount in a GT aren't parallel to the ground and are a little lower on the door sides. Did anyone find a need to shim them a little on the door sides to make them level? It's a fairly modest lean and I'll bet most people don't even notice it.

Leather seats from an early 90's Mazda Miata fit well and new leather covers can be found on EBay.

I've also seen leather seats from a late model Saturn L Series in a GT. Snug fit, less sporty, more luxurious but wow were they comfy when I sat in them in a GT!

Since you have both cars, why don't you test-fit one of the seats and then provide the pic to us? Haha, j/k
All these nice internal links went southbound when the forum software was changed a couple month ago.

I felt that they were much too tall and made the interior feel cramped. I enjoy them in my Solstice and drove cross country and lived in my car for a week or so and they were very comfortable. I feel that Miata seats are the better choice.
