Put the Hood up today.

Post by Robin Jones » Wed Nov 25, 2015 3:15

I put the hood up for my first time and sat in the car today. (Bonnet is hood to me and hood is top to me.) Reminisced a little. I have been thinking of a way to do a custom cushion for the little squirt too. Not going to be on the road with him other than buzzing the development nearby and as a taxi for friends at Mid-Ohio.

Hi Matt,
I recently had a couple of new seat cushions made at a local upholstery shop, using one of my existing cushions as a pattern, I got them to make me two new ones but twice as thick. They are much more comfortable!
Cheers

I was thinking something a little more for a toddler. I will probably have something done by an upholsterer. I have this vision of putting a false wheel, stick and 3 pedals in his reach. The little munchkin has caught the car bug from me and his late paw paw.

Hi Matt. Why not put your youngster in the Moke, and then add cushions until you have the right position, then get the measuring stick out. ( this assumes that said Toddler can sit still, for long enough!!) and you should have a good idea of the cushion sizes you need.
