side bolster

Post by Jigno » Wed Oct 27, 2021 5:27 pm

Ok so the type 3 was a bit "comfortable", and the type 4 leaves me sliding from side to side when cornering.

This is my second attempt at resolving it - My first was to put on weight!!! (although it worked to some degree I am probably around 5 stone short of what I need to be).

Attempt 2 certainly works and fortunately I have enough cow left to finish it in leather.

The question however, is how to secure it so it looks right. The fibreglass side panel is shaped and i dont really want to be drilling it.
Suggestions would be appreciated.

If you have already done something similar it may save me a lot of hassle

Could you fix it to a backing board with an extended portion that slides down the side of the seat?

At present the plastic supports go down the side and under the seat.
Think I am over thinking it and velcro to the side panel will probably work.
50 mile drive yesterday and it certainly does the trick.

The cow put up a bit of a fight but pleased with the finished result.
No more sliding :)
