These looked kind of interesting, the price is right:

Now look at the pictures, and check out the dimensions ...

Hmm, gotta get out to the garage and do some measuring ...

They might fit the pan but not the shoulder area.

The bottoms are wide at over 19 inches Spit seats are around 17 if I recall You can always remove some padding.

If the rails fit the depression in the pan, then the distance between the trans tunnel and the door usually becomes the limiting factor.
These show 23-1/2" for the backrest, and that might be an issue.

I did lots of searching & measuring for seats on my GT6 and I can tell you for certain that 22.5" at the shoulder is too wide on those seats to fit. Most seats are also too wide at the base, the tunnel restricts the width, and then you have to use spacers to jack the seat up. Then if your a big guy your head will be rubbing the roof, my only luck was that I am a little guy.
