That is one great looking seat!  I really enjoyed looking at the pics.  Your helmet art is fantastic too.  Nice job. :thumbsup:

Very nice Seat Replica , lots of small details which I never saw before in an Replica Seat. Well done.

Good looking seat ... but green cushions and flip-up chute container are not "BE MLU compatible"   :whocares:

Also in the mail today is my custom painted vizor cover with out virtual sqn logo and my sqn number & nickname.
That is SLICK !!
is it really painted? Does the paint adhere fine to the leather? Is there a commercial company doing this or did you had to pull favours from the real guys source :) ?

If anyone has a source for reasonable priced koch fittings (lap belt, harness & shoulder straps), let me know, it feels a bit unfinished without them.
don't feel bad about that one, they hurt your back when they are on the seat but you don't connect them (i put mine under the cushion) but they hurt anyway. Ideally they would need to be connected, but that means the harness too and i'm not ready to go that far :)

I've seen the flip up environmental sensors on active BE MLU's in KeeBee since at least 2014.

So far yes, it adhere's good. It's a one guy artists but he's available for work yes. Let me know if you want his contact info.

I am :D
I found a PCU15 with both male & female fittings online, but the price is still too high for me, certainly because I already own a harness.

Hi Faan,

is it possible to have those pictures on another site as well?
I cannot view them, and I will *not* create a FB account, no way that's gonna happen  :taz:
