Regardless of fixed or adjustable seats, has anyone tried nylon mesh for the seat bottom and back? This would be similar to the seat construction found in some off-road racing trucks. These seats are comfortable and made to withstand several g's. On the web sites for Skybolt contstruction, I see a lot of steel and aluminum pans and metal webbing, but I have not seen any withsynthetic mesh material. Anyone think this is a bad idea?
