Grab a seat.

A few days ago I ordered my Kirkey driver’s seat from Jegs, and it was here before I knew it. I scrounged the local junk yard for a few hours and got some seat rails to mount to the frame. While there I picked up a parking brake from a BMW, figured I might as well have some German engineering in my cornucopia of car parts. While working on the seat I received my trailing arm and a-arm tube, and the weld in bungs for them. I now have nearly everything I need for my rear suspension, short of the coil over shocks. The car will be riding on 1″x1″ RHS shocks for a while I feel. It’s very exciting to see the car take shape, and now with a seat I have something to sit in while I pretend to “test drive” it.

Note how luxurious the Locost is: It carries golf clubs!
