Thread: Double high seat conversion

    Double high seat conversion

    Due to mentoring a friend I decided I needed a double high seat but could not afford one right now so decided to try & convert an old single lean-to seat.

    Running a business means I have little spare time available so had a word with my father who's a retired engineer & still has his own workshop at home. He loves a project so got him over & explained what I needed.

    Off he went last week & turned up Friday with this, a double seat conversion that can easily be removed to turn the seat back into a single. He's made a cracking job of it & it cost 32 in parts.......bargain!

    Just waiting for a couple of foot pegs I've asked him to make to turn up then its off up to the farm on Friday to be erected in a likely spot!

    Cheers Dad your a star!

    Just fitted the additional foot rests, may have to relocate them slightly for comfort but will see how it goes Friday.

    That looks seriously well made, I think you father might have a budding business in the making!

    I have to say I wouldn't trust my Dad to put a picture up straight (despite his many other qualities)!

    Hope it's as comfy and effective as it looks

    Yes Neal he did make a great job of it, I mentioned he may well have a budding sideline but he said "no chance"! He plays a lot of bowls & does the grounds maintenance so doesn't want to devote too much time to anything else.......shame really.
