    You can get Kirkey aluminum racing seats and cut them down like marine seats. A buddy did this in his Jeep and had covers stitched up, comfy, safe, and looked great. Priced well too

    Old school true hotrod bucket seats were all low back like that if you can find some of those maybe

    I used to get the poly seats from Jegs/Summit Racing.
    They offer a short back version of the high backs in their catalogs and I've used a bunch.

    They offer different colored covers for them too.
    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.
