2000 FRC C5 Corvette Custom Seats
by Mell

We found the seats in our new C5 not up to the quality we wanted. Also we needed shoulder harness holes, which there is no provision for on the stock seats. Fortunately we were able to find torch red leather and here is the design we created.

On the stock seats, the foam rests directly on the spring wires and will eventually wear through. We put in plastic insulation there and also used burlap throughout to insulate the foam and materials from the fiberglass frame and springs. We constructed extra framing and made supports for the shoulder harness area.

The new design sure dressed up the inside of the all black interior of the car. Of course that is a matter of personal opinion :)
