Seats

Hi all, itís been a while since Iíve posted on here nice to see this site is still going. Canít believe my Avon is 11 years old now, and still going strong, Iíve just put a catalytic converter on it and itís passed its MOT

Video here

Anyway, Iíve just stuck a massive rip in the seat, and I was wondering where people had sourced seats with a headrest that will fit in an Avon. I know tiger do them but I would like other ideas, any suggestions would be much appreciated thanks.

Tut tut - where was your PPE? Sandals and angle grinder lol

I've got GRP seats in mine which are more comfortable than they look.

Yeah, I thought Q plate didnít need a cat either, and Iíve never had one for the last 11 years but I went to 3 different garages and they all agreed that they changed the rules last year. My usual garage closed down as theyíre turning it into a housing estate so I had to find somewhere new to go. There was a really long post on PistonHeads about two years ago about proposed changes where they were trying to bring in catalytic converter is for kit cars but Iím not sure if it went anywhere or if it was dropped.

neilp1 Where did you get your seats and how much were they?

MK engineering and about £300 for the pair but that was a while ago.

Intatrimdo some nice seats but can be expensive. I some of these in my other Tiger, but the ones without a head rest.
