Chicane II Race-Style Seat
New Chicane II Race-Style Seat Perfect for Pro-Touring and More!
If you’re an autocross aficionado, weekend warrior, Pro-Touring enthusiast, or you’ve got a Restomod project in the garage, listen up! TMI Automotive Products, Inc. is proud to introduce our newest product: The Chicane II Race-Style Seat. This new and improved seat might look familiar if you know of our Pro-Series Universal Sport Chicane Seats. Utilizing years of experience and expanding on previous blueprints, this seat has been re-designed and constructed with you in mind.
In fact, our new Chicane II seats will be featured in Ken Johnson’s 1971 LS3 #BoostedNova in our Goodguys Del Mar Nationals outdoor booth April 1-3, 2022 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in California. We spoke with Ken and got his thoughts on the new seats in his stunning ride.
“TMI Products nailed it with the all new Chicane II seat,” Ken attested. “These are the perfect blend of performance, style, and comfort. I’m looking forward to doing long drives and hitting the track in the BoostedNova.”
The Nitty Gritty
Our Chicane II Race-Style Seat is a complete replacement bucket seat with slider tracks and double adjusters. The seat’s frames are constructed in-house. The new design features a single horizontal harness well, replacing the pair of harness wells found on the top of the previous Chicane seat. The seats are purpose-built for left and right sides, with a reclining side lever on the door-facing side. This lever replaces the circular dials on the previous model. The Chicane II seats are sold as a pair.
As with the previous Chicane seats, the new version is equipped with a strong all-metal 1” tubular tilting frame for the ability to tilt or slide. This means that our Chicane seats can be completely reclined and adjusted for comfort — a luxury not typically afforded by classic cars. Wrapped around the metal frame is a heavy bolstered, high-density molded foam. The frame has a height of 35.75 inches (with two additional inches added to height with the mounting tracks), is 21.5 inches wide with new wide bolsters that fits a 38” wide waist comfortably, and the base is 24 inches long.
No More Dumpster Diving
If you’ve ever crawled through a junkyard or scoured Craigslist, picking the least dilapidated seats of the bunch, just to have them reupholstered anyway, you know the struggle. You (and your ride) deserve better! Those worn out factory seat frames just aren’t going to make the cut. This seat arrives fully assembled and ready for bolt-in installation. Mounting brackets are sold separately and are available to mount our new Chicane II seats in many popular vehicles.
The Chicane II Race-Style Seat is available in two distinct options: Sport or Sport-SS (Super Sport). The Sport-SS pattern is new for this year and features striking center double stripes, while the Sport features a seamless design without stripes. Our Sport-SS pattern was designed with race styling in mind, emulating the racing stripes found on the exteriors of many automotive racing greats. The seats are upholstered in high-quality vinyl, with the Sport-SS option giving you the option for contrast material for additional style. We offer many unique color choices and ten contrasting stitch options. That means the Chicane II can be customized to fit literally any ride.
This seat will be available for purchase on 4/01/2022, so mark your calendar!
