if i was to have a set again id have the GT ones. (extra width)

they are very comfortable to sit and drive in, just a pain at junctions, especially with harnesses on properly

sparco corsa are the best buckets I have ever had. lightweight and comfy, just a bit tight for me. I bought them off robmariott, there might still be pics in his garage.

revolutions

Only bad thing i have found with mine are, its made 5th a bit of a mission because of where the seat is.. but then again its probably made worse by my sloppy linkage..
Although i havent really had any issues with looking left and right and they are soooooooooooooooooooooooo comfy

Had nothing but problems this afternoon with wiring!

Looks like vauxhall decided on the last of the novas that they would intergrate the engine loom and car loom into one whole jumble of wires!

Plan nest is to get all the loom cut out i dont need and try wiring in the C16XE loom ready for the engine bay to be prepped and sprayed

Rob

Pics will be done when im home
