What seat design you going to use Tony, La-Z-Boy or Bark-o-lounger?

A La-Z-Boy would be nice.  grin grin grin    I am going to use a  modified version of the seat that Mark Donohue designed for road racing.  The originals were fiberglass, but I am building mine out of aluminum.

I got this copy of a Donhue seat for a pattern from AK Miller about 30 years ago.  Tony

Make sure you make it a bit wider for the ' Button Tufted Tuck & Roll ' for your Firebird low rider

30 years is a blink of an eye, I still have my dad's Lionel train sets from when he was a kid. Tony

These are the last of the pictures of the finished cooler.  The latches of have a "T" handle for adjustment and the whole thing comes apart for maintenance. Tony

Tony, it is a good idea to have a cover over an aluminum seat in case the sun hits it.  They can get pretty warm.  I learned this the hard way on my bike.  It had a bare aluminum seat the first year it was raced.  Never again.

Had a chance to start fitting the Jerico to the motor plate and bell housing today.  The motor plate and bell housing is the same style that is being used in the roadster with some slight modifications.  Tony



The motor plate and drawings are from my roadster build.


It the same setup as the roadster, but without the tube.  Where the tube is where the Jerico goes.

Started working on the layout for the seat and seat box today and came to the realization that the headrest will need to swing out to make the egress more practical.  I want to thank DND and a few of the others on here that have given me some great ideas on how to go about it.  But it looks like the most practical way is to have each side swing out separately.  For the benefit of others I will start a separate thread on this.  Tony
