    1 - Painting

    First clean the tyres. Then you can paint them in your favourite colour. You can do so evenly and easily with the PFS 2000 paint spray system. Then leave to dry thoroughly.


    Measuring the seat

    Measuring the seat

    To ensure that the seat panel fits precisely in the tyre hole, measure the diameter of the hole and transfer it to the panel. This is easy to do with a nail and some string: Place the nail in the centre of the panel, fasten one end of the string to it at the length of the radius, tie the other end to the pencil and draw a circle.


    Cutting out the seat panel

    Now you can cut out the wooden panel, for example with the PST 10,8 LI cordless multisaw.


    Cutting the foam to size

    Cut the foam along the wooden panel using a utility knife. Then place the panel on the fabric and cut it out, leaving 7 cm extra on the edge.


    Stapling together the seat

    Now it’s time for the cordless tacker, for example the PTK 3,6 LI: Centre the foam and the fabric on the wooden panel, turn everything over and staple the fabric to the panel. Place the stapled surface in the tyre. Your speedy seat is now finished!
