    I'm not sure what brand the seats are but considering it came from Japan, I figure its Japanese made. I'm going to put some head rest to these seats. Time to look for classic ones in the junk shop.

    5 point harness will be removed in the meantime and OEM 3 points harness to be used for daily driving

    Rails are super low. Lower even than my custom rails. The rails are aftermarket...wait forgot to take a picture of the marking

    Marlon the seats look great! They look more like recliners than car seats with the back angle....

    The seat cushion is moderately comfortable, but the back portion is all wood I think, no cushion at all. I may have to do something about that when I modify this

    After some time with that beautiful targa. Do you get much wind buffeting at speed? It looks perfect.

    Peace!

    Actually the Targa is not mine. A friend persuaded me to do the targa project. Since I've been keen on doing one for so long, I agreed. But for lack of storage space in the house, considering I have 2 hard tops, I could not afford to have another one lying around.

    I was able to drive the targa with the top portion on when I delivered it to my friend. So I wouldn't know how buffeting is at speed. Although my friend drove his miata with just the targa, I'll ask him what it feels like ;)
