Amazing work. But shouldn't there be a cup holder in the back of that fold-down armrest? Seriously, though, beautiful work.

Wow Cory! That's beautiful work! Do you have a background in upholstery or sewing??

On a scale of 1-10, how big of a PITA was the project?

That looks really nice - you should be justifiably proud. Did you attach the rear seat bottom to the seat in some way or is it held in by the fit?

Thanks for all the positive comments!

I did a couple of bar stool cushions for practice prior to the interior. That's about the extent of my experience. I've racked up many hours now, I'm certainly more comfortable now then when I first started.

I was on the fence about stitching the upholstery myself to begin with because it is such a visible component of the build and REALLY needs to look flawless. I told myself I would just try one front seat bottom cushion and if it turned out OK, would press on. After a few mistakes I have a better handle on it.

I was originally going to put cup holders in the center hump between the seats, but can't bring myself to cutting a hole in there. I think I will make something that goes in the aft of the footwell up against the tunnel. I can say with confidence that while sitting in the back seat a beer fits in that spot pretty easily and not in the way.

The aft bottom seat cushion has a plywood bottom, 3/8" I think. I made it a bit oversized with the foam, so for now it's just being held in by friction. I don't know if I will fasten it in with anything, seems pretty tight. Not to mention easy to remove. The back seat upright cushions will be bolted to AL seat backs.

I'd say a 4 if your patient. Of course if you are building your own plane, patience is a must. I probably have about 30 hrs in the seat upholstery.

Default Day 1

4 hr, 31 min of actual building on the first day in the shop. I can't believe I have something that looks like part of a plane
