Corbeau seats for front of 69-72 k5's

Anyone used Corbeau seats in the front of the k5's? I am looking at using the Baja ultra seats for mine. Thought I might go with the smaller baja ss ones too. Just looking for some feedback and maybe some pic's before I order em up.

Pics attached... excuse my mess... still in the middle of several projects... The seats are fully mounted with sliders and passenger tilt forward, the console is just sitting on a block of wood at the moment but it looks like it should clear the hump and t-case shifter fine...

Looks good. I am planning on bolting mine to a roll cage, so I don't want them to be too tall.
