Great write up on MGF seats here https://forum.triumphdolomite.co.uk/vie ... &start=480
Just scroll down a bit........
I’m fitting Fiat seats into mine which looks simple enough. But all will require a bit if headsratching, and fitting slightly differently each time, dependant on your seating position preferences.
I’m stumpy legged and long armed, so should have bought an Alfa!
Just to add a comment or 2 on James' MGF seat install. Whilst it looks lovely and feels comfy initially, James soon discovered it wasn't as good a fit for him as he hoped. Rather than mess with it, he passed the seats on to me. I actually fitted them to the Carledo in the cowshed at Stoneliegh (easiest way to transport them in a Toledo!) and on the drive home I reached the same conclusion, the reach was too short for my (rather longer than James') frame and the angled up front mount was too high for proper comfort. So when I got them home again, I removed them and separated upper from lower runners and redrilled them parallel to the floor and staggered 3" further back. This gave me enough rearward adjustment for my 6' height and a much more comfy seating position, they stayed in the car like this for a few years till I got my racing seat sorted and refitted and they are now doing prototype duty in the Dolomega till I get my black MGZR seats sorted. Then they'll probably get dyed grey and used in my next project!
So overall, a good seat and a simple conversion, it just needed tweaking a bit!
Like the OP, standard Dolly seats absolutely CRUCIFY my spine, my long body/short leg combo means the backrest doesn't even reach my shoulder blades, side support is near non existent and lumber support completely lacking. I really don't know what to make of this awful seat design, i'm certainly not the only one who hates Dolomite seats. I used to run a 64 Volvo Amazon which (even then) had ergonomically designed seats, far superior to those in the Dolly. To this day and including many moderns, the Amazon seats are some of the best i've ever sat in, I could drive that car 400 miles without a break and get out fresh as a daisy, 50 miles on a Dolly seat and I can barely stand up and I HURT!
