As it happens buddy I've been waiting for you to turn up for the last two days, but I guess you won't leave your house whilst theres womens hurdling on the Tele!

Tony is correct I did have a coupe of old vehicles which have since been disposed of and one of em had a pair of Sparco seats, but I got rid of em cos too many people winged about the Landy being there

sorry
 
Cheers anyway.



Looks like im paying full price then.
 
I sold the Landie to a guy who was restoring it and I doubt very much if he will want the Sparco seats. I'll try and find out his number and you can talk to him directly
 
It just so happens...

I built a lowback bucket seat mold to make seats for my marina.

Got pissed off trying to find seats for every boat I restore.


Alan:)
 
cool. i like the screen as well.

My boat is a nice white and tangerine orange colour.
 
Sorry...

thats not my marina. Thats the hydrostream.

Heres a pic of the marina the day I picked it up, a bit of a basket case to say the least, but the price was right...FREE!

Deck

I had to pop the lid to reglass the bow back on, the previous owner thought it a good idea to try and raise the foeward deck, rather than lower the seat :bang: Plank!

Transom

It got a new transom too, somone had done the old chop-down trick instead of getting the right shaft length engine, while I was at it, there was a couple of knees and a new floor thrown in.

Yer. Is this one yours as well
 
Try looking for some seats out of Avon SR4 seariders, the tiny ones, loads of people cut the bow dodger off, chuck the seats and fit centre console. The seats are brilliant, had a pair which I used in 4 different boats till I broke them in a Ring.
