Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Decided to have a play this morning with the Phaeton, as she has sat on the drive now for 2 months without even being started.

So after connecting the RAV4 defibulator manged to bring her back to life, and sounding good too.

the plan was to remove the drivers seat to see what mod's I would need to make to get the Westfield seats in. The Westie seats are 350 mm wide on the base and the back, the space I need to squeeze them in is 340 mm Hmmmm! this is going to be a little more difficult, I now have to find 10 mm, which means cutting the tunnel and side panel. I'm going to start with the tunnel which should be the easiest to slice 10 mm out of without affecting the space the prop runs in. If that doesn't work I may cut the back end of the tunnel out altogether and fabricate a new tunnel in ally, now thinking about it that maybe the best way to go and quickest.

More thought into it and I am going to cut the tunnel out and re-fab in ally with a steel prop cage. That will give a lot more room, much comfier on the long tours we do up in the Hard North.

Yup, not a lot of space to play with, but you should be able to find 10mm either side.
