      Corbeau LG seats, anyone?

      I searched and saw a couple old posts of some who have used the Corbeau LG1 seats in a 1st Gen Camaro. Anyone have any reviews on these? Pics?

      I'm in the process of figuring out my seat right now as well and would love to hear people's experience. I love the look of the LG1 and it's 5-point compatible. The only thing stopping me from pulling the trigger is the lack of thigh bolsters.

      I was talking with Kim at MCBPARTS.com and she told me the LG1's were out of stock until June, maybe more. I'm now looking at the Distinctive Industries http://www.distinctiveindustries.com...etail?Itemid=2
      and doing a complete houndstooth interior upgrade.

      If you like those DI seats, check out the Procar Rally type seats. MCB is a distributer of Procar, they're the same style as the DI seats, and when I sat on some, I thought they were very nice for the price. I was considering them myself when I was looking at that style of seat.

      Seems like everyone is out of stock everywhere on seats. I ultimately decided on the Recaro Speed in Black Vinyl/Saturn Black (very similar to the Corbeau LG1 you were originally checking out) and made the purchase today. 8-12 weeks to get them over from Germany, so now the long wait begins.

      Before anyone buys Procar Ralley seats they should sit in them for an hour or so. The seat bottom is NARROW between the bolsters. Iíve got a 32Ē waste and they kill me after 20 min.
      The bolsters are also so tall that the seat barely tilts forward before the seat bottom bolster hits the seat back bolster. I have to tilt AND slide the seat all the way forward to even have a chance of squeezing past to get into the back seat.
      Iím going to have to take them to a local upholstery shop to see if they can cut the foam back and redo the seat bottoms.

      I have LG1 Wides in my 67 Camaro that I had Corbeau install seat heaters and cover with leather..not certain why they don't offer that as a standard configuration (or at least they didn't back a few years ago when I got these). They fit pretty good, the issue is that I also have Morris seatbelts and between the extra-wides and the inertia reel covers (and the console), you've got roughly 11 pounds of stuff in a bag made to hold 10 pounds, if you get my drift. As I recall we drilled new holes in the seat frame just to skew the seats a tad to make things fit better. I'm just a home garage hack, so it is possible that there was a better way, and if you aren't going with the Wides, you should be golden. I'm a pretty fat guy and I find the seats to be very comfortable. Not sure what else I can answer for you?

      I installed my LG1's over the weekend. Had to cut the plastic cover off the existing seat belts and since they are the wide version, they are tight to the center console but, I love them so far.

      I agree on the Procar seats. I had them in my 67 and they were the most uncomfortable seat's I have ever owned. Those side bolsters were brutally narrow. They sat high too, decreasing headroom. (I'm 6'1" and 230#).

      That's a factory 68 consol. I'm 6' 260 and the seats feel great

      Agreed on the height. I cut the mounts down to the bare minimum and it helped.
      I could not recommend Pro Car seats.

      The wides are definitely tight fit. They feel great to sit in I am 6'3 and 240, haven't driven yet. With a 1 piece fiberglass headliner barely enough headroom, about 1.5 inch. Ordered straight from corbeau, great to work with.

      1.5" of headroom would be a dream come true for me in both my cars.
