building some bomber seats
« on: July 11, 2012, 05:46:00 PM »
so i am building a set of bomber seats for a customer . i figured i would document the building of them and make a thread . these are pretty much a plain jane, basic set style i make ( they can get pretty fancy with custom orders) these are made from 16 gauge aluminum, will update the thread as i progress.

this is what we are making



seat back cut out



back braces cut, bead rolled and some drilling



side brace, where the seat belt hole is



seat bottom cut out



brace that attaches to the seat back and seat bottom, holes still need dimpled



all the pieces cut, drilled and bead rolled, all the large holes still need dimpled, and the seat belt holes will be cut out later

Very time consuming , I have wanted to try my luck at building some also . I even went so far as to buy all the stuff for the hammered rivets in aluminum and brass . I guess that I will wait and learn from the sheetmetal master .  ;D  Please document all that is involved , every step of the way .

In my opinion for what it is worth. There are car builders some good, some maybe not so much, and then there are artist , Cornfeild Customs is an Artist . My hat is off to you, I read all of your posts and believe you are an asset to this site. Thanks for sharing with us.

I totally agree with him being an artist. I just hope that damn contest he was entered in, see's his work and awards his business that grant.
Love building rat rods, driving mustangs, and building websites.

They look real good. I am thinking on replacing my forklift seats.  Scared to ask what these sold for?....
