Hi alex,
Do you think it is worth buying those pad sets for £59 each. Does it still feel comforlable. I just thought about getting some for my fibreglass bucket seats so offroad i don't get pummeled to a pulp. I also thought about mounting them on little rubber bobbins so that absorbs some shock.

Hi Max, to be honest, those pads are so thin, I don't think they'll do much to absorb any shock! :-[
They look good though 8), but I think that's likely to be it.
I like the idea of using rubber bobbins though! :)
I would like to take this opportunity to answer Alex's question & Max I don't give a s**t about not being PC, Alex you're a SLACKER

Hi Steve,

All together including postage they were £333
I'll have to measure the gap for you but if IVA won't allow fire extinguisher petrol tanks then I'll be looking at a behind the seat one anyway! There is quite a bit of room, baring in mind I added a one inch spacer on the rear mounts to give me 100mm extra legroom, so I already lost some space behind the seat. Dunno how big the normal tank is?

A girl is a bad idea on this sight, all the guys lol! Anywho, It was a laugh when i got mine and i got mother to sit in them as i was saying how comfortable they were, when she stood up, the seat stuck to her, Lots of laughter and a few seconds later, she was out, lol.
