How should i measure my body to see if this seat will fit me? I am 6'2" and 155lbs. I have 18.25" width on the driver side and 17.25" on the passenger side. This seat will fit in the car but i am not sure if it will fit me:

The seat's dimensions are here:

I love OMP products .
I have had two of there seats custom built for me and they are some of the best seats I have ever owned .

to measure your self it's very ez .
take a piece of card board and fold it to a L shape and place it against the wall and floor .
make the piece big enough so it goes from your knees to the wall and up the wall to the back of your head .

now sit on it and leaning against the wall mark your bodies out line on the card board .
having some else trace your out line is best as your arms are out like you would be holding a steering wheel .
then take your measurements from your out line on the card board .

a proper seat will fit you like a helmet does or should .
a good seat will tell you what the car is doing at speed and it is also part of your safety gear .
any seat were you can move around in it or you have to readjust your self in it when driving is totally worthless !
your belts should not be what holds you in a seat and any time you have to readjust your self in a seat takes your mind off your driving making the seat kind of useless .
