I had the car on the track for the first at Pueblo a few weeks ago for a test day. In turns 1, 5 and 6, in particular, I really liked how the leg extension held me in place. No bracing, no tensing up. The extensions were all a good addition to the car (to say nothing of the protection they afford).

Do you have a picture of the seat in the car?

Here is an (old) picture of the seat in the car without the fabric covers on. I do not own the car anymore, but the seat is for sale by the new car owner in the advertising forum.

I'm a bit confused.

Butlerbuild's website says: "Our SPEC RACER FORD Seat is available from SCCA only. Seat can be converted to full containment by adding a Sportsman Advantage Bolt-on Head and Shoulder Kit."

This kit is shown in the attachment. It is a much bigger component. The pictured items seem to be the individual items, and that is all that is shown in the SCCA parts list.

A more significant, frame-mounted Butlerbuilt head restraint available?

When I did my seat in 2013/2014, the parts shown is what they were selling. There is more (and better) options available now for the head restraint.

in the picture from davep, I see three squares cut in bottom, the one in the center I recognize as the sub strap hole, what are the other two?

Sorry for the long delay. Just saw this question.

The single hole was for a 5 point harness. The two back holes were cut to convert the seat to a six point harness with two sub-straps.
