Bucket Seat Installation

We all love Youtube for advice and information, and installing your bucket seats is no different. We’ve had a browse around watching all the various videos of Westfield/Caterham style vehicles and what drivers have done when installing their bucket seats and harnesses. We think these are some of the best videos available. 

In this particular video the driver uses a lovely set of Carbon shell seats and shows what modifications he needed to make to the seat slider handle to fit them correctly. He also points out the best practices to measure up the fixing points into the vehicle. This is well worth a watch. 

So which do you choose?

Choosing the right bucket seat for your Westfield or Caterham kit car is essential for comfort, safety, and performance. The Cobra Roadster 7, Tillett W1i, Tillett B10, Tillett C1, and Tillett B6 Screamer are all excellent options, each offering unique features to suit different needs and preferences. By considering the recommended driver sizes and specific features of each seat, you can ensure the best fit and driving experience for your kit car.
