Need a little advice
Need a little advice on a seat for the model A. Need to get something that sits as close to the floor as possible, yet enough support and padding to take on a road trip. I'm 6'3" and want to chop the coupe 5 inches. We're leaving the coupe un-channeled and would still like to have an upholstered, stock-ish style seat versus a bare metal bomber seat. Any ideas or pics?

  • Mine is chopped 3",I can't imagine 5" you will only have a sliver of a windshield and will greatly reduce your field of vision especially if you are that tall, you cannot lay back in the seat as it only goes just so far back.

  • I have seen the sitting arrangement for some extreme chops and channeling does not look comfortable

  • My thought is don't chop it that much. those hard chops get tiresome on a long trip. Buddy.
