I think you did a fantastic job with the design and execution! I think it fits the car better as well. I get that the Rolls is the epitome of comfort and all that but honestly, in that reference photo it looks like someone just shoved their living room sofa in the back of the car, which I think looks a little ridiculous. I most definitely prefer the seat you made.

You said early on that you were planning to make a kit. Do you have any idea at this point how much you might end up selling them for?

I appreciate your humility, as I think there is not nearly enough of that trait going around these days. However, I do believe that anybody who can face a mechanical problem and can conceive and execute an effective solution is an engineer. You, sir, are an engineer. Don't let your humility hide that from yourself.

Why do you say that a screw with a finer thread would create a stronger bond? Wouldn't a finer thread be more liable to get stripped, especially in plastic? In my experience, fine threads are only good for machine screws, whereas coarse threads are best suited for wood, drywall, and plastic. Or does the courseness of the threads really matter anyway, since most of the work is being the done by the nuts clamping it together?

I'm sorry I've never commented before, even though I've been following this thread for months. Your reengineering (hey, it's not often you see two double 'ee's in one word), scratch building, and detail work are just incredible.

This looks amazing! The hood hinges say 1:25 but the rest screams 1:12!
