Seat Cut-down Modification (Video)

Postby Redzrx » Sun Apr 10, 2016 6:20 pm



Hello GWers .. thought I would show you a Vid I did today .. I did a seat mod to bring the height down a bit so my feet are flat on the ground and knee's slightly bent.. Not sure if this should go in the DIY area.. but if you need to bring the seat down a bit.. check it out. hope it is helpful ...

thanks . I have seen so many Vids showing the seat being carved up that I had to show there is another way.

Nice workshop! Tell me about your heater up near the ceiling.

the heater is made by a company called " Easy radian works " it's a Canadian company in southern Ontario. the Model is a "Heatwave" 40000 BTU , it's 8Ft long . this one has an adapter for Propane.. have all the wiring and pipe hooked up but do not have any tanks yet so can't really tell ya how it works.. Took me months to get a pipe fitter so all winter I had a 240 electric heater on.. 40 degrees when not in garage and turned it up to 60 F when wanted to do some work.. just built garage last August .. and did all the inside myself.. I will do a walk around Video so you can have a better look..
