Airline Seats

Most of you have seen the post on nose art where I mentioned my installation of Airline pilot seats that replaced the barrel seats.

I have a 1985 270 MH 454 w/ Banks Power, 600 amp hour battery bank w/ inverter, new hot water heater, rebuilt 3 way refrig., sat. dish w/ plasma falt screen, new drivers seats, new Ac, new sink w/ new counter top, and new flooring. Yes I got the bug!
Here is a photo of the 727 pilot & co-pilot seats that I have restored and installed. I removed the cabinet between the seats and installed a new folding table ( in the down position). The seats have been upholstered in orginal United Airline sheepskin and leather. These new cost over $25k...ouch.Don't ask what I have in them...Please?
My next project is to install a Gear Vender overdrive.
BTW, when people ask what the monitor on the dash is I just tell them it's my Fish Finder.. Cheers

Most probably, don't ask where you got them.

There is probably an ex-UAL 727 in some third world country with milk crates for cockpit seats, eh?

Most likely...What is interesting is that there is a metal tag on the back of the seat that reads in red.. " Seat must face forward during takeoff" scary

here is a shot of it up. the table top is from herman miller, an office furniture system it's 2'x3' costs ~ $50 used. the brackets are from haffle co. a commerical hardware co. they ran around $60 for the pair. they are HD, could have gone lighter. I still need to finish off the back side and replace the last of the orginal fabric at the sidewall.

I will send an image of the kitchen counter top I just finished

Here is a shot of the kitchen counter, I replaced to top, new Frankie sink, Moen faucet and Ikea S/S shelf at the back. I also refinished the cabinets. Sanded down the orginal finish, applied 10 coats marine varnish and 2 coats of English furniture wax... It's as smooth as a baby's behind.
