Default Rear seat install question

I just finished installing a rear seat kit on my 03 CC DS. I purchased it from one of our sponsors. It was fairly straight forward with the usual poor quality install instructions and diagrams we have come to expect for items that need assembly. One thing I noticed and did not expect is my head touches slightly against the lower back edge of the roof when my back is fully against the seat back. I do not have the extended top just the stock one designed for a 2 seater. I'm 6' 3". My GF clears it by an inch or so. Is this common? It would seem that a spacer designed to give the rear seat back a more upright stance might keep you away from the roof top. Comments??

Thanks

Well hells bells. I thought it was better to avoid this with the shorter roof. I have heard others say they did not go with the longer roof to keep from hitting their head with the higher seat in the rear. Also I don't really like the safety bar but the slow moving triangle does not fit under the seat so the only real use I see for it is to attach the triangle to it. What do others do about that?

Those rear seats are only good for kids, or one adult that sits kinda sideways. My bad, two midgets will fit :)

LOL..I hear ya. Ok since I'm whinning I have one more complaint on the seat. My kit came with spacers that go behind the backrest on the front seat to give additional room to keep the 2 back rest and riders apart. My front seat backrest now makes me sit a little closer to the steering wheel and cramps my style a bit. So other than hitting my head on the roof in the back seat and feeling cramped in the front seat this rear seat kit rocks

Same here on the head hitting thing, i thought about pulling the new rear roof supports back off and drilling new hole 2"lower on them, which will raise the rear of the roof up 2 inches...
Oh, and i prefer to be close to the back seat so i can reach around and smack the kids when the misbehave!!

Maybe they make a smaller slow moving triangle than the standard one I have. I might be able to cut it down to fit under the seat. What are others doing?

Thanks
