Recaros are just a smidge tight

On my lats/back, is there anyway to widen the bolsters there, maybe change the foam under the leather to softer or reshaped?

I have to kind of shimmy my back in to get centered between the bolsters right before a hard turn or I kind of slide up the bolstering on the side the g force is pushing me. The Recaroís on my Boss were perfect, and the Shelby Recaroís upper bolsters were great but the thigh bolsters were way too tight! Canít win here, lol

Have you considered getting the standard seats and removing the Recaros? I haven't seen examples of people trying modifications to the foam or seat frame, not that it couldn't be done, but I would imagine the effort to do that might be better spent swapping out seats. Of course, that's not a inexpensive solution. Good luck with it.

Might get lucky and find someone who is swapping for Recaros?

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.

A REALLY good upholstery shop could do what you're wanting. However, not only would they have to custom "shape" new foam, the leather would have to modified as well.

I think over time the will shape themselves to fit your form. Just like shoes that have to break-in. As long as it is not too big of a difference.
