Almost done with fab

I fabbed up a seat for Goldie.  I had an old piece of 1/8" thick aluminum, so I cut that out as the base.  Then I added two pieces of 1/8" thick 1"x1" aluminum angle that act as both the hinge point, and add some structure.  A pair of rubber bottle stoppers hold the seat against the fuel tank. 

Bottom side of seat pan:

I had some leftover fabric from El Guapo, and thought the brown would work great with the gold/green color scheme.  Three layers of foam and a couple layers of batting provide the cushion, while a few "furniture movers" push through to give the tuck and roll look.  

I also made up some side covers in card stock, to get the right shape and size.
