How wide are they at the top? My son and I were looking at a 65/66 FB at the Dallas Mustang open house this morning that had similar seats and they looked as if they almost touched in the middle at the top. They look cool from the side in your car.
IF YOU DON'T STAND BEHIND OUR TROOPS,
PLEASE, FEEL FREE TO STAND IN FRONT OF THEM
For a modern seat, they really work well with the other interior mods. The Red / Black on the seats, steering wheel and dashboard all look great together.

no seat pan modification. used wedge adapters and the recaro tabbed sliders. everything bolted right in.
i was able to mount the back of the seat at the lowest hole. the bottom of the seat almost touches the carpet. i measured the height and at the back the height is actually a lower than my stock seats. the front i had to mount on the middle tab. the front of the seat is about an inch higher than the stock seats. i actually like this seating position, it's very confortable and supportive, keep you held in the seat pretty good.
the width of the seats are fine, plenty of clearance of both sides.
i am going over to the garage tomorrow, i can take a pic of the top clearance and the mounting, i'll post it thursday when i have a chance...
if all goes well, i will be able to give the car its first drive since i finished the t-5 conversion tomorrow. it'll be with open headers so i won't be able to cruise to far but i'll get a better idea of how everything feels after the drive i am sure....
