Jak - Shhht don't tell anybody
The second coat of gray was applied with a can and then, the whole seat was coated in matt varnish - also from a can. That should protect the paintwork a little from my future abuse.
I have an oxygen bottle getting lost between germany and my home - so I couldn't finish the left side - but the right one is about completed
The cables are rubber hose for car - the restraint stuff are dummies made of wood and aluminium sheets. Notice the first placard I placed from Gwen wonderful set
I also cut the back rest below so to give a better stability of the seat and at the same time give a better angle.
Damn, I forgot to get those two tape pieces of the knee protections !
Detail of the rubber hose stuff.
The main part has been machined on the lathe and I used some large spacers to make it look like real - although I believe the main part is a little too big! The special washer with the vertical part on it was done with a small candle for keeping the meal warm. It was cut to size and glued on one of the spacers.
Made some test for the seatbelts and the homemade straps - still need to finish that headrest!
I also found some real cushions, so I'll soon be able to replace the blue ones - although I'm getting used to them
And finally a question - Anybody knows what I'm supposed to do with these two pins? I remember from a previous discussion that is was to maintain the belt in place. Where should I make the retention holes for those?
