I received my "kit b" at sun-n-fun in 97.  Maybe I caught the "let's try it
different" approach and they changed it back.  The 16" front seats are a
tight fit on the eletes and you have to narrow the fronts a little in the
front corner to get the full range of seat ajustments.  I do not know if the
14 1/2" front pans are going to make a difference as far as comfort is
concerned compared to the 16" pans.

BTW the seat backs of my front seats are also narrower.
