Looks quite nice, but...

A little welding done and rest of work is silicone...  :censored:  (see left corner)



Someone had done some welding... I could push my fingers in, where arrows point... it is all open there.  :help:

This is is a setback, because I had a quick repair and motor change in my mind, before I´d start working with my American gasser amd Willys Jeepster.
I´m going to put this silver beast to sleep again and start something else  :amc:  instead.

Drivers seat had some torn seams and vinyl.

Started this job about a year ago, so it was time to finish it...  ::)

Lower part has now a piece of vinyl. Because seat cover has all parts on, I couldn´t use normal sewing machine anymore. I  restored my shoemakers sewing machine, one I bought over 20 years ago...



That´s done...



Lower part had so much issues, it was easier to fabricate a new one...



Done...



And now I have "new" seat...
