Seat Construction #3

January 3rd, 2011 Comments off

The seat is basically done. Primed, painted, and three layers of exercise mat foam glued in place:

I’ll round off the front edge sometime and that may be sufficient. Some sort of cover (lycra? 3D mesh?) may be necessary, though the bare foam is comfortable and seems quite resilient.

I’ve finished all the steel cutting and preparation with the exception of the steering gear. That needs to fit the actual (as opposed to intended) frame geometry so is best left until later in the process. I have no free time for a while, and expect that welding won’t start for a few weeks.
