Ohh and the Red Arrows already has a bar Wink

I am determined to use it, but we will see....

Remember the pic of the front seats previously! ^^^ Above.

Here they are now! Very Happy







Loads of work has been done on the back bits as well, this is how its looking now!






Next I need carpets, any ideas? Want something the same colour as the red of the seats. Will probably have to get them custom made.

For the amount you would need try a local carpet warehouse / shop.
Might get enough 'off cuts' to do the job.
Carpet suited for hallways and landings is quite robust.

You could get the tape, stitch and bind the edges, a few carpet press studs would hold it in place.
Can be removed to clean etc.

Dad decided to surprise me on Saturday morning with what he had done Friday night! Cool Cool






How its looking now! Very happy, going to put adjusters in the front beam to get it to sit as low as the back and most likely a narrowed beam, to help with turning circle! Very Happy

Will send another email to Volksworld Show tomorrow Wink

Until next time,

~Lee
