    Thanks Mike, I have Recaros in mine. Your seats look to be in good condition so I'm quite sure that if you advertise on eBay then someone will buy them.

    Hub shaft? Looks impressive and expensive! You should put them into production.

    Excellent work....

    Love turning, we don't do enough of it at our place.

    Always deeply satisfying turning your own stuff...

    Spec'ing my Garage Mahal / Home Machine shop / 3D printing shop is going to be a near future project.

    P.S. We just bought an autoclave at work so will be doing our own carbon parts soon :-)

    I am envious! I could be busy for several years if I had access to that (and possessed the design and manufacturing skills!)
