I was just wondering what material you used to create the seat and the method.
Awesome build. Thanks for sharing.
Brilliant rig. Love it... thinks I'll have to remodel my desk setup lol
Appears to be the Foam beads and Resin technique.
Bag of Special foam beads....add special resin...Mix till evenly coated then start the shaping process by Sitting in the seat and pushing the foam in the shape you want. You'll needs a rough frame to be sitting in as Nika build with the MDF base.
If you google how do F1 driver's get a seat made, there's even a "How its made" episode that covers a Indy driver getting a seat made.
found it for ya
Actually, the foam bead and resin method is more expensive than what I did. I just used 2-part Polyurethane Foam 2lbs Density per Cubic Ft. About $70 worth of mixture.
Deserves its own article on Home page with more words from the talented maker.
