Modifying Seats

There are some really nice seats available, but they are all about 2" too wide - what are the frames made off? and with a bit of enginuity could these be cut and shut to make them fit?
I was thinking of Forza, or Cobra Clubmans etc

Never thought of making your own?

Mark,

I have Hicosts old Cobra seats and they are about 2 inches too wide. I have stripped one completely and made it narrower by squeezing the lower frame with 2 sash clamps and done a cut and shut at the top with a hack saw and mig welder. The frame is a tubular and square section mild steel jobbie and real easy to work with. The whole lot is covered in foam and I am going to finish them in black vinyl with blue alcantara inserts. I also bought some new harness slots from Cobra. They are a silver tear drop shape to replace the original black square ones. It is impossible to get the old harness slots out without breaking them.
I have tried to insert pictures in my messages but never had any success. I'll try again but don't hold your breath.

Mark,

Just come back in from the garage with digi cam in hand. Take a look at my photo archive, I have uploaded a few pictures of my seat frame and harness slots.
