John was up at ARRK a couple of weeks ago which gave us both the opportunity to try the revised seat buck. We are both around 5' 11" and after folding ourselves into the seat, we both agreed we had the optimum back angle and profile that gave us just enough clearance for our heads with lid, best vision, best package for the thighs to wheel, and knees to chassis.

Have to say it is a tight fit! So we removed the seat buck last week and I took it to Steve Tillet to manufacture a GRP prototype, and also to add some of his magic to give us good lumber and lateral support. I have already designed the basic seat support frame and runner systems to replicate an original, and once I have the buck back, I. will manufacture the seat frame and runner system, then one more trial and we can make the final mould.
