    PA 12 seat sling lacing

    I have searched the forum, no luck. Help me out on PA12 seat sling lacing. I'm starting to have a helmet fire. I have the cord, I just am not sure how to lace it correctly.

    I think you need to flip it around so the grommets in the middle are on the outside of seat. Then you fold top row of grommets over top tube and lace down to the second row of grommets. The row of grommets at the front of seat gets laced under seat to the row next to them. I hope I don't confuse you. Don't have a picture of mine to share

    Hi Mike, I’m just about to replace my rear seat slings with plywood, what thickness of sheet should it be?

    I use aluminum with couple angle stiffeners. With lightning holes cut out. Probably .032 2024 T3 back and .040 floor

    PA 12 seat sling lacing

    Thanks Mike! How do you attach these to the tubes and front wooden cross member and could you post any pics please?

    I was thinking of just hinging the panels (if plywood) together and just using clips on the tubes and letting the front of the seat rest on the wooden member. If plywood, what thickness would you say?

    normally you also add an underseat storage box under rear seat from stoddard(Landes or maybe carbon concepts makes one?)

    you hinge rear of bottom to/on top of rear baggage floor, assuming you have that?? a picture of what state your plane looks like with sling removed would help....

    this video not really applicable to your installation had some issues to over come because of doors on both sides... but gives an idea of the metal work seats.. also thin is a lowered floor version on the longerons I did, with extended baggage....

    This is how the (pretty much original I guess) rear seat frame looks without the slings Mike
