    Hello all you lovely Fchatters,

    I have recently completed a special project for a customer and he's requested I share it here.

    This project comprises of a surplus Daytona seat from my customers parts collection, along with some Koni shocks, leaf springs and a few finishing touches.

    After the frame and rocker were fabricated, we trimmed the seat in Connolly Vaumol leather and re used his original Daytona seat strips. This was then assembled with a hand crafted aluminum surround, number plate, Daytona tailpipes and the all important bottle opener.

    Hope you enjoy this for what it is and this thread doesn't de rail into a debate on the use of an original Daytona seat ect.

    Very cool. Can you put rockets into the exhaust for some extra boost?

    Thank you everyone for your kind words, to all those who are interested in the Daytona, the below picture is for you. Carpets and dash remain original and the seats and leather panels have been re trimmed in original colour Vaumol.

    Ski bum, yes its very comfortable.

    wow, beautiful workmanship. For me though, I would have you install a venting connection in the seat bottom to the pipes for removal of exhaust gases after extended use of that bottle opener.
