JK seat transformation
« on: September 06, 2015, 08:04:24 AM »
I got a new Mastercraft driver's seat for my JK.
So what to do with factory driver's seat?



Took an old shop seat I had from one of Hamilton Standard's tag sales
and made a more comfortable workshop seat.
4 bolts, washers, nuts, and a piece of 3/4 plywood...
Transformation complete

When I purchased to shop chair back in the early 90tys I was guaranteed that HSD had done extensive testing for the guvament to ensure the casters and support frame would never develop any type of wobble or vibrating oscillating hazards.  :mad02:
