Seeing as I've decided that I'm going to make time to go on a road trip with Elsie this year (and the current idea floating in my head is Norway), I figured I should look at just bumping up the comfort level a touch.
I got in touch with Allon White to see if it is possible to retrofit the Probax seat shape within my existing seats. Fortunately it is and for a not too unreasonable amount of money even for the pair. I was a little worried when, after sending a photo of my seats, they said they'd need to buy a whole hide in! Turns out they can use the existing materials though, but I'll end up with additional stitching as per the Probax design.
So this evening I've uncovered Elsie from her hibernation and removed the seats. (A shame that the most exciting thing I found underneath was a single penny!) Not too length a task other than the near side rear bolt for the passenger seat which had me hunting around for a long extension piece for my ratchet driver.
The seats are now a comfortable addition in my kitchen waiting for me to take them down to Bedford next week. Here's hoping I can appreciate the difference seeing as they're going to look pretty much the same.
