The Building of the seat bases and plinths was relatively easy, except that I was
puzzled by the height of the seats in relation to the Glare Shield.
All the drawings I had seen showed the Pilot’s line of sight was to just clear the
same angle as the GS.
The seats I got hold of were out of a Ford and a Vauxhall car that had been scrapped,
so unfortunately didn’t match each other.
Because I wasn’t able to get a height adjustment with them I had to make the plinths
an average height for all.
