      Thinking about making a few diy videos and whatnot for you guys. What would you like to see? Installing jackets? Breaking down seats? Installing new diaphragms?...

      Let me know.

      Thanks - we make all of our own patterns. Once we have a perfect pattern we keep hard copies

      best bet is to start with a chair that already has the armrest since there is a limited selection of seats that you can mount the armrest to.

      Once you have a seat its super easy. I used this guys, its from a yaht, has full power functions as well as heat.
