    Awesome modification.!

    Might have to look into something like this when it's time to re-do the seats.

    Nice!

    Are you willing to share the CAD files?

    I wonder how these would look made out of brushed stainless, without the hole in the center? (And left uncovered)

    I think I read that you need the hole to make the seats more comfortable, and let the air out of the seatback when you compress it by sitting in the seat.

    That might explain why my retrimmed seats were a little harder than standard? I'm nearly sure the seat backs were remade in a solid piece.

    Yes...you are correct. When you sit in the seat the seat back surface goes into the cut away area. If it was solid, there would be no place for anything to go, and the seat would be rather uncomfortable.

    I dont see how. Seat heaters should go directly under the upholstery to have any real affect. A different seat back would not affect that.

    I imagine that would add some unnecessary weight to the car, aside from the aforementioned reason why the hole is there.
