Sorting the seat base

September 17, 2015

Yesterday we received the seat base in the mail from David.  He had made a jig and laminated some plywood to match the frames kick/bend.  He did a nice job of it.

 

Unfortunately there is a slight twist that occurred from the lamination process.  This will be compensated for by having 4 secure fastening points to the frame to pull it all down evenly.

 

 

 

A rough outline was marked out for the base and cut with a circular saw (should have used a jigsaw but didn’t have one at hand).  Then some fine-tuning was done with a sanding wheel.  A small amount of wood was removed in two locations on the underside of the seat base – to fit some of the frame details.  Now it fits great and sits flush.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also finally finished the welding on the exhaust header – just patching up the slots on the cones.  I always try to get a good strong penetrating weld, but I am also starting to work on making the welds look a bit nicer where I can.  Case in point…  Getting there ;)
