Mk1 spitfire seats

Very difficult to find Mk1 spitfire seats these days.

The good news is that you can get new covers, and I am pretty sure the seat frame is common for Mk 1/2/3.

On the Mk1 the squab was simply padded with horse hair with the addition of some light cotton/lambs wool around the edge. - Newton supply a kit for early Morris Minors that is suitable, and you can cut to fit.

For the cushion these are just slabs of foam mounted in a wire basket. Again pretty sure the basket is common on the early Spits. Unfortunately the foams are no longer available, so here you would have to cut your own from upholstery foam.
