could really do with some cash at the moment times are hard but it is not the most desperate sale in the world i am very attached to it to be honest with you as rspatrick said these solo pod seats are extremely hard to find

Nice! Have you made it yourself? :D

Im gonna make a singleseat with the Y-panels in the summer vacation.
Might try with carbonfibre if it is a success!

Not sure if I should make it 100% carbon fibre or just one layer carbon and the rest fiberglass..

@Ryan:

its not that hard to fix, just use fiberglass sheets on the inside to reinforce the cracks, grind the cracks whider and a few mm deep out, and than use resin to fill them up, sand everything down till its smooth, than use spray filler/primmer to get it perfect, waterproof it, degrease it, and than spray it with atleast 3 thin coats of paint.

@Holfy: Chrism ment 80 to 110 for Fiberglass rear ends.

If i where you i look at something else to sell because you probably wont find an other one again (fiberglass or carbon)
