Datsun Competition Seats

After looking for a set for a few years I bought some of the look-a-like Datsun Competition seats they arrived today after been messed around by Parcelforce for a week BUT ended up not paying any duty.

Seats look OK compared with originals pictures that I have seen but don't have the basket weave vinyl on the inserts.

Might have a go at fitting them over the next few days.

Those look great. Hopefully they are comfortable and a good fit size wise.

Has he priced them already?

Do aftermarket seats like both examples above need to undergo safety type of tests etc?

When I have the info, I'll pass it on Mike.

Mine will have the OEM eyelets and I have the option of a textured seat and back rest. A choice of materials too - real leather if wished or a very good leather replica in the OEM vinyl style but more supple.

Made In Europe so shipping and certainly customs (except for the jammy dodger-Dave here) will be very competitive.

I was going to say all the above. They currently look like a cheap kit car seat.

I've always loved the look of a black seat with eyelets in a Z. Those look very nice Dave. So are you going to spill the beans on just what kinda money they cost? and from whom?
My Z currently has a pair of Corbeau seats which I plan to change to Corbeau GT8 seats over the winter. Same shape as my current seats but with the eyelets. Corbeau do quite a good selection of retro seats and they are a UK company. http://www.corbeau-seats.com/classic-retro-series
Attachment is a pic of the Corbeau GT8 seat.

1) they're not Datsun eyelets
2) they have a lumping great namesign on them
3) anybody can buy them so not exclusive
4) they aint cheap either at +£750 for a pair with runners

No offence - they're your choice and I hope you're happy with that choice but I wouldn't dream of putting them in mine.

They're also far too chunky looking as a starter.

At least with your base to start with the shape and size is better
