The seat bolts are wearing holes in the rib protector. There are counter sunk style plastic washers on the bolts heads, so that’s not the problem. I covered the rib vest and bolts with gorilla tape, but the tape wore through in one race. What do people cover these with? The other thing is when I was fumbling for my engine off button, the pipe quickly melting a hole through my suit elbow. Again, gorilla tape, but I would like the hole fixed so it is abrasion resistant again because this is right on the elbow would hit the track in a crash. Can this be done somehow?
I found something called Tear-aid for repairing Nylon (my suit is Cordura). This seat though is a mystery. My builder put a XL Tillet in but it is too large, but it presses against my rib vest in places. The hips are way too big and the seat seemed comfortable at first, but now it feels uncomfortable. I could buy seat pads and see if that fixes it, or I could buy the smaller L seat and try that.
