Default Fitting size large racing seats in a Samurai?

Loving my '87 Sammie so far. Couple challenges to be expected.

I am 6'4", 215 pounds. The four point racing seats push against my bones. Gets noticeable after a couple hours. Must be size medium. I need size large.

Looking at the interior, it seems like seats would have to be custom built to allow a large person true comfort.

A lot of money was spent on the heavy duty tubing. Almost a waste without good 4 point seating. Only need one good large seat...

Anybody know of safe seats for the larger person that will fit in a Sammie?

Know of a "vice-grip" with 4' handle and 12" jaw? I could bend the sides that push into the driver.

4 point seats? Am a bit lost on what that is. I know of 4pt harnesses/racing seat belts but most seats have 4 mounting points under them. Lol
Race buckets are poly seats that curve around the driver and if the seats are tilted back 2" the weight is dispersed off your tail bone.
Suspension seats, Beard,corbeau, and various off brands usually have room for us bigger guys to be comfortable.
I'm 6' an 218 w a size 44 suit jacket for shoulder room.

Is it the seat or the belts that are digging in?

The sides of the seats are not quite wide enough.
