    It's a wire management method called Cable Lacing. It's a running stitch using a waxed string, and was very common in the aircraft industry and in WWII. Basically before plastic ties, you did this or wrapped wires with friction tape. It works very well and though it may look intimidating, it's fairly easy to do.

    I'm not sure Tim - if so it would be in a regular car maybe this fall. Are you coming to TROG? We are......
     
  4. I received some great patterns for my seat from a fellow HAMBER....But thanks for the offer to make some for me.

    Sorry about not getting the patterns.....things got busy and it slipped by. If you need any other details, let me know.
     
  6. No problem as I know how time gets away from a guy. But I sure could use a pattern of the package try if you have one to copy. They want 155.00 plus shipping for one and I could build one in 30 min if I had the pattern.

    I am using the original seat and we moved it back so there was more leg room. The package tray got shortened in the process. Keep up the good work on your fine looking three window!
