Today we have some very exciting and long awaited news but before we get to that let’s go over the regular things.
We have a brand new build update on the second orange AS2C, it’ll be our main project for the rest of the holidays so hopefully we’ll make good progress.
Now to the really important news: Over the past few months I”ve mentioned that we were in the process of developing replica seats for the AS1 and AS2 models. Well, now we”ve finally received the finished product! They consist of a fiberglass baseplate that has been molded of the original metal, it is identical to the original except for the material. Not that unexpectedly they use a foam cushion, again molded after the original. And finally they use a fake leather exterion that’s been chosen to as closely as possible look like Yamahas original. They are true to the original seats in every possible way.
Now why did we develop these seats? In the beginning our plan was to get enough seats for our own restorations seeing as they are next to impossible to get a hold of. Over the time it has taken us to develop them we’ve been contacted by quite a few of you who also need seats for your restorations so we’ve decided to offer them up for sale. Initially we’ll send an order for a bunch of seats early next year (second week of january), both for ourselves and also for those of you who need seats.
Those of you who’ve already contacted us, I’ll send out information about the seats to you. If you’ve contacted us about the seats but don’t receive and email from me in the next day or two, send us another email yourselves, I’ve got quite the list of people to go through 🙂
For those of you who want seats, send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Now, the moment you have been waiting for: pictures of the seats!
