Bucket seats for SV

Thinking about bucket seats for my SV - do they only come in one size? - or is there a wider version for SV's as there are leather seats?

Caterham parts only seem to list one size?

Thanks. Garth

What do you mean by "bucket seats" ?

Presumably the Tilletts that CC offer? Only 1 size as far as I know, though Tillet might do a wider seat that would fit an SV.

I do mean the Tilletts - have established that CC do offer a wider version for the SV. They have also told me that some have fitted the the standard size to an SV!

I fitted a standard Caterham Tillet to my SV - no issues. I even used the runners off the leather seat. I have a 'spare' Tillet too - bought 2 but could only fit one as my petty strut would not work with a passenger Tillet. Looking to move it on if interested.

I went for GT seats which are a bit like upholstered Tillets.

They're no longer available via Caterham but Oxted Trimming sell them direct.

Supremely comfortable, supportive and great-looking too albeit at an eye-watering price (but worth every penny)!

Are there any other Tillet type seats folk have fitted - happy to go for GRP rather than Carbon fiber! Want a bit more lateral supprot than given by my current standard Caterham seats.

Hello Garth! I have found that, to me, the carbon ones comfier than the fibreglass.
