Bucket Seats Wanted

Looking for a pair of bare high back bucket seat shells suitable for the Arrow.

I say bare shells cos I'll need to upholster them to match the boat - but if they're used and there's existing upholstery on them, that's also fine.

Need em at this phase of the project to design the cockpit layout around what fits.

Thanks
M

Hi Matt - must be nearly ready then!

I have got a batch of high back bucket shells already laminated if of interest.

Have you got some pics of the finished (upholstered) article?
I recall they were v comfy.

Sadly nowhere near finished, but I am at the point of need to cut the wood for the cockpit and back seats. As space is tight, I need to design it all to fit quite carefully and make sure all the mounting points are in right place.

Only photo to hand

I think they work really well - pretty snug fit - but that is good.

I can do some shells at 65 plus vat.

Next batch will be more expensive though.

Have shells from our SportCat seats and also have a slightly wider low back seat shell that I can take a pic of tomorrow if you like Matt.

At 65.00 each I would not be asking twice if I needed some shells, get them bought!
I would not want to make them for 65 a go.

Very good price.
