The driver (lady) of that team dosen't fit the seat any more (darn she's added more flabby ballast). All I did was pour the PVA over 2/3 of the seat waited three days and the finish texture is 450 woven cloth - bit like uniform dimples. .......... For a bit of colour I put Hot Pink Pigment @ 4% in.
Oh dear, I now have a picture in my head of hot pink dimpled flabby ballast, dressed in a pva uniform, and sagging evenly across a messy speedway seat.
Fibreglassing is obviously only for the brave in Aus!
But thanks for the help guys.
