Seats are Done

December 29, 2013

You saw yesterday that I had the seats assembled.  Today Winter came back and it is 19F outside right now.  My garage is just plain cold, but I battled through it and got both seats and the seat back braces deburred and riveted.

The seat backs went together pretty easily.  The braces were a bit more tricky.

2013-12-29 22.36.57I had to cut those lightening holes.  I didn’t have a 2.25″ hole saw, so I went up to home depot to get it.  When I got it installed in the drill and cutting it mangled the metal brace.  I had to spend some time cleaning that mess up.  I made a night trip to Lowes to get a different one…which worked nicely.  Once I had the right tool it took 3-minutes to cut all the holes and another 15-minutes deburring them and making them safe.
