Use google for their websites. Russel has a nice picture of an airhead with seat. Mayer site has none that I found but they do make them. I actually just purchased an old seat pan and plan on having that covered. I will keep the stock and Corbin seats.

time to sell some old seats/ parts to be able to proceed.

Work progress on the Russell seat pan & re-firbuishment of same.

I placed a BREATHABLE, double layer, nylon fabric down first. Many call this a shade screen type material. Since I had some extra it's what was perfect for the job. It breathes, it's heavy grade nylon and is porous. I would NEVER use a sheet of any kind of plastic that was not breathable because it WILL trap moisture and hold that inside the pan area. I also added drain holes and had thIS pan bead blasted and etched before I did all the thread and anchorage modification. Now it has 2 coats of epoxy paint.

I'm almost finished with the recover work.






seat bead work done


I'm doing a write up for Airmail about several different mods like this one.
