|Note the F1 driver on the screen?|
The driver is carefully extracted from the insert and a rough insert remains. See it below. This is used as a reference to determine where the beads need to be placed on the final insert formation.
When the resin is added, you have approximately 3 hours to form the final insert. The beads take on a doughy consistency so it becomes quite easy to form and shape. The 3 hour window gives the insert maker, enough time to sculpt his masterpiece.The rough insert still has the plastic covering that will be trimmed off along with the excess polystrene beads. This rough insert still needs to cure for 12 hours before we can begin our trimming process.
The next stage of the insert construction will remove the excess parts. First rough cuts are made and then finer and finer shaping cuts are used to create the insert. Holes are cut out for waist and anti-sub belts. The insert is then sanded to give a smooth surface for the fire-retardant upholstery.
|Insert for Recaro ProRacer|
John races his BMW 3series in SCCA and has found the seat to be uncomfortable as he has some hip pain from a previous accident. We removed the seat padding and fit him with an insert. We think that even clients with traditional race seats can benefit from a Pro-Seat insert. So expect to hear about us offering this product and service for all sportscars in the very near future.
