Well, I had a Aussy buddy who wanted to find out why his Great Grandfather was sent downunder... he went to Summerset House and found the records...
He wishes he hadn't, as he found the original sentancing papers...
Seems he was sent away for having too many "girlfriends"...
Whats wrong with that I asked?

Dear AlansD,
That looks like a fine piece of workmanship me. I shall heave ho the virtual step ladder across the racks, drag out the Upholstery File, blow off the dust,
pop in this vital information,slide it back.. and refer to it should needs be..
Thank you so kindly
TC

After previously providing the wrong name of the manufacturer, I thought I'd follow up with a photo of the real seat.

I just ordered these for my 345. Look at the price. I did vinyl lasts a lot longer. I added heat, lumber support and the upgraded foam. For 2 shipped to GA was $1000. Can't beat that. They have a list of options to add to them. Discount truck and rv

Hi John,

My seats are the Magellan II model. I sent them the leather, and the Alcantara fabric for the insert panels that I have also used to recover my restyled dash and door panels. there was no up-charge for this. Although I haven't driven anywhere yet, I am told that this model is the firmest of all the seats that they build. This seat does seem to be a bit bigger that the original (which was pretty flattened out).
Be aware that the arms do NOT adjust to a "level" position as the seat reclines. This isn't an issue for me, since I am separating the front "cockpit" from the rear salon section of the coach with a bulkhead wall and pocket door. The larger size of this seat did necessitate my moving that bulkhead back a bit more than planned in order to achieve the fairly reclined driving position that I prefer.I'm about 6'-2".

Charly.

Keyair,

Thanks very much for posting all those shots of your 345. It has real potential. None of that exterior work is pressing, but doing it all, and then perhaps stripping the clealr coat and maybe even polishing it would really set it off nicely.

It's a great interior too. I love the colour of all the wood paneling. Again, a bit here and there to do, but nothing dramatic.

I appreciate seeing it all.

Aage

Charly,

Am I misreading, or is that photo of a custom dash you created for your a/s? Wow. Amazing work. I'm seriously debating tearing into the dash on my '83 280. Would love some addition photos of what you have as well as a few stories of how you got there...
