Eric,

Everything seems to fit pretty tight but he sends a roll of velcro to attach it with. On the 9 its just a seat back and the cushion he makes velcros to it. I see you are a neighbor and fellow United employee, so you are welcome to come see it in person if you would like.

Default Beautiful

I've sat in the Oregon Aero seats, which are incredibly comfortable for long hauls. What's your initial impression of seat firmness/comfort for the foam that Lemke uses? At least based on the price sheet, Lemke looks like a pretty good value.

I sat in them yesterday for the first time and made airplane noises. They felt very comfortable but I have no point of reference either.

Yes I am on both accounts. I would love to come see it. I have just started talking to Robert at Lemke and he seems easy to work with. So many decisions to make and with all of the delays with everything its becoming a real logistical challenge. Are you still building at your house or have you moved to the airport yet?

You can use Dan from Vans Airforce or DMat. Should work either way.

My 6A was the template for his 6A package. It's the grey leather with diamond stitching on his website.



PS: post ticker just rolled over to 1000. Wow!

Robert just shipped my interior this week. Pictures looked great. Can't wait to get it and install it.

Jay, it may just be the perspective in the photos that's tricking my eyes, but that Tosten grip looks like it's *really* high off the seat. Did you cut down the stick tube at all or did you just install it at the top of the stock tube?

You are correct. It is the stock length. I was waiting for the seats to figure out where I wanted to cut it down to. I sat in it last week and was looking at that very thing.
