Is that rear seat and cage as tight as it looks? That seatbelt bar looks like a nose breaker. Looks cool and a fast build, good luck in Harlan.

Seriously only 159 for those seats. They look pretty could. What is the exact brand of them. I want to find some on this side of the state or maybe grab some when I go to GR later this summer.
