Excellent work.


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

Lol Steve..you would! Should be finished today.

Ice.... it's based on a MkIX spitfire seat its made from 1.5mm steel for the bucket seat and back, and plywood for the sides. I have added a padded seat that allows me to sit without falling into the bucket seat lol and today will see a printed seat adjustment lever fitted and a final coat of paint.

Oops, just noticed I've stuck this post in the controllers section and not in pit builders lol..how do I shift the post to the proper section of the forums?

nice seat.... I take it you have some sort of metal bending/forming machine or just lots of patience and a long table edge n weight? I am going to have a try at similar for my lanc sim as the victor rear crew seat is too heavy really....

I got the tin basher at the work to help me, helped find the angles and distances etc, then we used the hand folder at work. I then completed the woodwork etc and built the chair up.
