  • [Wanted] Looking for some parts

    Checked off the list. First and for most wheels, I'd love a good set of the 15" BBS tires are a plus but not required. I'd also be interested in Enkei Compe classics or Chaps.

    A hard dog harness bar

    A JR or RB header for a 1.6

    And possibly a black or mariner blue hard top.

          Have a harness bar now, and I'm planning on buying a race land header.

          If anyone has a racing seat meant for a big guy let me know

            What are you measurements? Seats for the "husky gentleman" are pretty limited unless you plan on modifying the tunnel ( a lot). I don't like aluminum seats, but the Kirkey and others similar will be your best bet.

              I'm a 42-44 waist, I've emailed NRG about their large seats and they told me that they've had a guy with a 42 waist fit well in them. I've been hoping to run into someone local who has one of those seats but I've had no such luck

                I have seen those sell cheap. If you are using the seat for track use, consider a back brace to support it. Most seat manufacturers do a decent job listing their seat measurements. I know I went to a BMW indie shop in Alpharetta to try some of their race seats on hand. I was your size a few years ago and I used Lotus Elise seats for track and daily use. I also fit into a few of the aluminum seats I mentioned above. They are pretty inexpensive and their mostly vertical seat profile give you a fighting chance at fitting it in the car without heavy modifications. I know there were a few people here who had aluminum seats when I asked, but I found a kevlar seat that I couldn't refuse.

                  I have tried some lotus seats, something about the thigh figment wasn't great which sucks

                    The Ultrashield Spec Miata aluminum seat and Rally Sport seat may be your ticket (~$400). They come in different widths and basic upholstery that can be modified by layering foam to suit you. When I was that size, I had issues because I have wide hips and shoulders, so the seat that fit me had shallow thigh bolsters. The shoulder bolsters on some seats would pinch at my shoulder blades, sort of forcing me forward. That would get uncomfortable after about an hour's drive.

                    Try looking at the Trackdog Racing site on those seats. Cross reference it with Spec Miata forums, too.

                    Eventually though, I got tired of being that size and got control of my health and habits, I dropped 60# and am comfortably at a 34" waist. The largest I was was 250# with a 42" waist. I got down to 165#, but feel more comfortable at 175-185#. It took me about 14 months, but it was well worth it. :)
