I think Premier Performance Interiors might have some pics on their website. They don't advertise on OSO so I don't know their site addy. Who is that interior guy who builds for Formula and MTI? Might be some pics on his site too.
I have always wondered who built MTI's seats, who is the guy?

McCleod builds for Formula, Sunsation, Baja and several others. Keep in mind the companies that do this for a living might not want to give these details away on the web for all (including the competition) to see.

You may have what you need ot take care of any framing, but you will find that the majority of the shape is derived from formed and cnc plastic materials. The foam will be another challenge. Then the upholstery. The majority of the boats that I have given new life have bolster structures of plastic or wood. If you are looking for basic, there are several producers out there, which may take the headache out of a total in house creation.
