Anyone have in-car pics of the Forza? Also any experience with Forza II?

Hi all!

Anyone have pics of their cars with Corbeau Forza seats installed _with_ the backpad? (I know the Forza doesn't fit the backpad, but my seat doesn't sit within the backpad anyway.)

Secondly, anyone have experience using Forza II's in their 914? The base is only an inch wider.. I wondered if that was enough to cause fitting issues?

Porsche Crest Here Ya Go!

These are some shots of my Forza Seat after installation about 2 months ago. You will notice that I opted for vinyl. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT go for the vinyl. The material is of relatively low quality. After only 2 months of use the vinyl was tearing along the seams and around the lap belt holes.

Fortunately, the dealer listened to my concerns about the quality and had Corbeau replace the seat with a fabric covered one. I am much happier with the new seat, and for the price, it can't be beat.

I highly recommend AutoToyStore If you call Jim Huston directly you can get the seat for $192.00 plus delivery. The seat rail adapter cost another $22.

The Forza barely clears the handbrake with their seat rail adapter, so I imagine the Forza II could potentially render it useless. (if you make your own seat rail adapter, quite easy to do, it would be quite easy to center the seat to the steering wheel and ensure clearance for the handbrake.

Good Luck

Yup, ditto what he said. Actually, the fabric model can't be much better than the vinyl. I have a few tiny (1/4") tears in mine. Also, I have to open my door just to release the ebrake handle. A one piece ebrake would probably be easier though. I elongated the holes slightly to push the seat more toward the middle. I'll do it more so later if I really get annoyed. I took the entire interior out of my car, so pics won't help much. I prefer either all stock or all race look.

BTW, I have one 914 adapter and two 911 slider adapters if you know anyone interested. Just looking for realonable offers.
