Not quite sure what you're asking for - pictures of non-standard seats which offer better support ?

If so, I have these Ridgard seats in my 1959 Sprint:

Thanks !
that is what im trying to see, they are really nice, probably not very easy to find diferent seats been used on mostly stock giuliettas ,and more towards the ones used for rally/racing events.

Lightweight 911, where were you able to buy the brackets to hold your racing seats? or were they custom made. I need to fit my seats know and am trying to figure how to make a safe securing system while keeping the seats low.

Sprint seats

I make reproduction seats for Lightweight Veloce's and also make a Zagato style version which is an approximation of a seat fitted to the SVZ's in period.

I found the trimmed pic on the internet several years ago & adapted some of the Lightweight frame I make to suit.

Hard to make, every part is handed, the seats are handed and are different sizes as are the floor pans - they need a myriad of purpose made stuff to get them to look & work correctly, but they fit properly in a Sprint & use the standard seat rails.
