Starting to fit the most important bit

 

That is, the driver's seat. It's just on some wooden spacers for now, but I have some aluminum brackets and some plans to get all that bolted to the chassis. I have to say, for a pretty bare-bones racing seat, this Kirkey seat is a pretty good sit. It's an aluminum shell with pretty minimal padding on it, but it's kind of like an old wooden rocking chair in that it fits me way more comfortably than it sounds like it would.

I can't really completely finalize the position until the fuel tank and aft firewalls are in, but this is really close to where I will sit. I'll add five-point harnesses in both chairs as the build continues.

I can't wait to be able to turn the bonkers on.
