Andy is that where the steering wheel will end up or are you moving it down to a better angle? Looks like your driving a bus at present!

Cool Andy

Getting ever closer now - bet you're like a five-year-old waiting for Christmas. Nothing too serious with trailer I hope... wouldn't want anything spoiling your fun

Keep up the photos - colour scheme looks good by the way. Mine is pretty much the reverse of yours (i.e. blue and white swapped over). To be honest this means I spend ages cleaning the white (sorry arctic grey) tubes so your mostly blue ones should look cleaner for longer

All doing a fine job!

Now wear patch placement has been sorted I thought I'd bring my thread up to date and show you the latest pictures of my new baby. I look forward to bringing her home shortly.

Looking good Andy, remind me how the back seat is going to work?
Can't believe the interest in Vipers since I sold mine!

Peter 7 said I would always regret selling mine & all this talk of them dose not help!

Nick
I'll have a go at explaining

The Idea is that it will seat 4, two front ones in the traditional way. The two back ones will work in one of two ways.

First, whilst cruising the seat back on the rear will be tilted back (more upright) in a normal bench seat position. The passengers will have their bums on the transverse seat and legs either side of the jockeys, I am hoping and planning that there will be enough room to stand at the back too.

Second, whilst at rest the Bench seat back will be tilted forward (at a greater angle to provide comfort) to provide comfortable seating at the rear whilst fishing or picknicking etc.

The added advantage is that the U shape will also allow my kids to stand in the centre in reletive safety.

Thats the Idea If it works

Looking great, Andy. Cant believe the amount of interest lately in the vipers
yours looks nearly ready to pick up, and then the real fun can begin.
Keep the post going with plenty of pics.

Andy,

I'm finding that on a nice sunny day one really needs a drink holder. I'm gonna pop a couple on mine.
