Seat Time
This is something that I know very little about but thought that I would have a punt.
Using my shortened seat base, about 50mm was cut from the foam.
Installed a Gel Seat Pad form Kno Place Upholstery about $60 to my door. Some high density foam around the pad and two layers of open cell foam over the top to smooth out all the bumps.
Gripper seat material all stretched and stapled.

The material I bought form the US eBay site, search "FACTORY EFFEX FX BLACK GRIPPER SEAT COVER MATERIAL".

Cost me about $55 delivered - there is enough to cover the seat twice (I am sure that I will tear it the first time I fall off - it looks too good to stay in one piece!).

A face to a name

Hey D

Good to finally meet you and put a face to a name. And to see the 'Tanker' in the flesh. Some time and money has been spent there.

Equally as good to talk a bunch of nonsense, some sense, and solve some worldly problems

Hopefully by the time you get back from you next trip I should have some 'stuff' for you.
Watch this space.

Cheers


For those that haven't met him Damian is as nice a bloke as he comes across in his posts.
And he is short!
