Seats

 

I After a lot of research I decided to purchase IPECO seats for my sim. This makes the third set of seats I have purchased for this sim. I decided to purchase the IPECO seats and refurbish them to look the the latest seats in the 737. Below is a picture of my latest seats.

In refurbishing my seats I had to take the seats apart. Then I stripped the seats and repainted them.

After repainting I began to work on the cushions. After getting a bid from an upholsterer to reupholster my seats, and after recovering from the shock at the price, I decided to do the job myself. I purchased an old Singer sewing machine off Ebay. Prior to sewing though I decided to incorporate the Ivibe seats into my sim. I tested the seats and love the feel they add. I took the components out of the Ivibe seats and incorporated them into the Ipeco seat cushions below.

 

Finally after completing the installation of the Ivibe components into my seats I completed the reuphostering of the cushions. Here is what I have completed to date. I still have to complete the headrests and sew on a few lablels and the seats are done.

Today, January 20, 2006 I received the seats to my flight simulator from Jim Doyle of Desert Air Spares International. After reviewing the options available I decided to go with actual seats from the 737. One was manufactured in 1968, the other in 1975. I am going to restore them and try to make them look like the seats in the 737NG as far as color and materials go. I will update with additional photos as they become available. Click on my seats below for a direct link to the supplier.

 

I also have a jump seat pictured below that I will be using in my flight sim.

For those who wish to use other seats than real 737 click on the photos below for links to the supplier of these seats.
