    has anyone found a lighter seat that still looks kinda stock , I looked all throughout a wreckers yard with my scale and so far the Camaro seats at 35lbs are among the lightest but I would like to drop 10-15 lbs off that if I could ,

    Most late model seats are heavy. 3rd gen non power cloth seats are about 25 lbs each. If you're trying to really shave weight in the seats, you will have to go to a real racing seat, not cheap and don't look stock.

    No not yet , that was the last resort thing , the benefit to it would it would still look stock so ultimately would be the way to go ,
    My car weighs 3780 with me in it even after I cut the door bars out ,

    Also look at the Corbeau and other aftermarket seat mounts for ideas
