  • bomber seat concept

    Still a work in progress but here is a first cut of a bomber seat. Seat material is 3003 H14 Aluminum (14 gauge). When everything is detailed I plan on using a bonding adhesive for the seat itself. An experiment for sure but one I will learn from.

ID:	589893its been a while as I was sidetracked on other things (ie: new job) but wanted to package the seat in a rod concept. obviously still extremely rough and interferences everywhere but it gives you an idea. the manikin is 95% percentile which is a 6'2" 225 male give or take a bit. vehicle height is just below 58 inches from groundline. still may be a little tall for a rat rod but..... Now what I am going to focus on is taking this seat concept and putting in some mechanical adjustability. that will take a while. I posted the concept on pinterest and its gotten a lot of attention (it appears on Grabcad in IGS format as well).

              In my project I am using boom aluminum benches. I cut off the head and now the shoulder pads.

                some nice work. I see a lot of punch and flare work. good stuff. some nice welds too. I just bought a gas welder so I am about to put my money (with my designs) where my mouth is.

                            Welcome back!
                            I took a tig course last winter, just a evening set of classes.
                            hardest part was tig'ing a piece of pipe together, overhead at a 45 deg angle up on the opposite side as your dominant hand.........
                            practice makes perfect!
