Has anyone pulled out their OEM seats and put in racing seats?

Rich at Redpants started this project but never saw if he completed the project - I am sure this requires custom seat brackets -

I build my own one.
The most diffcult is to find the housing connectors.

Can I ask where you sourced the seats from and if possible provide a price (private PM if not wanting to share on here).

Any information would be appreciated.

I buy the seats (2000 GBP) of a crashed DBS and I fixed minor carbon damage (500 GBP).
At astonmartinbits in the UK.

Awesome, well done for getting hold of them so 'cheaply'.

I'm looking at sourcing some for my car and getting them trimmed to suit interior.

Pics would be great after you install them. I limit my track time with my vantage as I've come to the point that I feel naked without my HANS. I'd love to be able to install a set of 4pt asm harnesses into the car
