Default seat height?

hey i am the proud owner of a new to me 98 240sx... which is awesome and super fun to drive... besides the fact that my head touches the roof... i have adjusted the seat and even leaned it back so i am not quite touching but my hair still does. (my hair is maybe 3/8" long) ...

so my question is what seat/mounting bracket or some other shenanigans do you all recommend? i'd like to be able to wear a helmet in this thing at some point next summer

think short thoughts.....

every tall guy I have ever known has had to rock the seat OG style.

the stock rails are already pretty low, not sure if the aftermarket rails from Bride and the like are compatible with the stock seat.

Buddy Club makes some super low seat rails, but IIRC they're on some crazy backorder. They're definitely worth it...my 6'3" codrivers fit in my car with 0 issue.

yeah i am 5'11" and def touch the roof unless i sit "like an OG" as superdorifto says

the buddy club rails look awesome... do they fit w the stock seats or am i looking at a seat purchase as well?

any options that don't cost a potential arm and leg?
thanks

miata guys gut the btt padding on their stock seats.

slick top probably has 1.5-2" more clearance then a sun roofed car.

S13 epic head room? im 6'1" and not small and i fit perfect in my S13.i think i might just have long ass legs though.

Side note i thought bride made shorter then stock rails, but you may have to invest in a Bride seat as well.
