    Default Seat pads - Racing foam

    Does any one have a close up foto of the 91 racing seat pads, ref picture ?... specially the back side is of interest

    I belive they are made with foam w skin on the mold side ? (ref the Orginal bump pcs from 93/94)
    Picture of the main seat pad matching this rear bump ?

    Thinking of a possible reproduction for a few sets of these .. Any expertice w this type of foam materials ?

    Hi,
    pm McGeordie on this site, I think he may have got in before me and bought a new seat and back pad from dudlington also on this site, sorry if I'm wrong. If you get any made mark me down as a possible buyer

    I did get the recent ones, happy to take some photo's if required, I'm sure the underside of the seat has no fastenings set into it, so not the same as the one Henk has posted.

    Just let me know, I could sort tomorrow

    I have never seen a bolt on pad on a Corse- not saying they were not used. Every year Corse I own has some form of a glue-on pad-- the early OEM style pads have a slick surface--your is of this style-- and the later OEM style pads were uniform grey dense foam without a slick surface. I have seen the early in many different heights. The later styles seem to have about the same thickness but came in many different shapes- from simple flat to those which curve down the side of the seat.

    +1 Stig... nice! Please let me know if you go down the route of getting some made up, I'd definitely be interested too.

    Default Outline of Race Pad

    Hi Guys

    No progress on a the second go at reproduction / foam cast of the race pads due to time ... some of you have asked for dimensions of the org Race Pad ... Pictures attached.. w Outline and X/Y dimensions for possible scaling.

    Thickness 30mm mid section... 34mm at the edges...
    (surface facing your rear end is FLAT... surface facing the tail is slightly curved, hence the difference in thickness)
