Brief Description:  Rear seat installation

Installed hinge halves on seatbacks and seat bottom.

Trial fitted, and BUGGER! The starboard seatback is OK, but the hinges project too far for the others, and everything does not line up. Am exceedingly cross at something else going wrong, I seem to have the Errol Flynn touch today... So I throw some tools around the shed and stop active work for the day.

Gingerly tried out the seatback that worked, and found it reasonably comfortable but the gaping hole in the spar made it less so. The fit of the top of the seatback against the spar face and holes is a bit funky, and I don't want to make them shorter. Spend some time leafing through the plans and looking at other peoples sites and can't find any reference to the concept. Decide it won't hurt to try, so cut out some covers from 1/4" H100 and consider them. Hmmmmmm. Feeling calmer now.

Climb back in and try it out again even more gingerly, and the seatback just sits flat, and it is much comfortabler. Winner!
