Are there any generous Locost builders in central Florida that I could meet up with and have a seat in their car? I would love to feel a couple different sizes before I pull the trigger. I'm 5'8" 183lbs. I would love to get as small as possible, I think the Book frame would be perfect for me.

You shouldn't have any issues fitting in a book frame car. I'm 6'2" and about 285 and I fit in mine, which is a book frame. Fitting in the car depends a lot on the kind of seats you want though. Mine is very basic, just a couple plywood backed cushions like in the original Lotus 7.

Thanks! I have some Bride clones that I want to use. They are 18" at their widest, the thigh supports. I feel like I can make them fit, using 3/4" tubing and small tunnel, maybe even have the panel on the inside of the tubing as well. Also, I plan on shaving off the PPF mounting flange on the Miata trans as well.
