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