Seat box options, 94 D-90 NAS

The aluminum part might be salvageable but the battery box and tool box are gone.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

I just purchased (few months back) a complete seatbox with battery and tool box from RN for like $400.

That said, I would sell you my takeout, which are in way better shape than what you have there for $100 + shipping.

Was it a NAS seat box or did you have to modify it? I called them and they said they could only get the newer seat boxes which are different.

I am just in the process of stripping the battery box and tool box out of a NAS seat box I bought , NOS, from RN a while ago. They are white and would need painting but other wise very good. $50 plus shipping from Va. Bill B

I decided to go with some repair panels from YRM Metals in the UK. They were great to work with and I had the parts in a few days.

Everything is thick gauge aluminum and precisely cut and bent so it fits really well. No more bi-metallic corrosion!

Here are some pics of the rebuild.

May I ask how much air you were using with the rivet gun? I have yet to try mine on real parts as yet. The only tests I did were at like 80 psi and it was pretty out of control. I have a nice air rivet squeezer that is a dream to use but doesn't get into tight spots.

Very nice, I'm glad to hear that about YRM. I was curious to know how they operated, it seems they have a lot of replacement parts. Your work bench has a lot of character and interesting tie down for the battery, never considered a tie down like that!

I use 90 PSI from the compressor and then fine tune it at the gun until I get the right hammer rate. I use one of these... http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalo...clickkey=10406

Squeezers are great, but there aren't many places you can use them.

LOL, it was a temporary setup, I was trying to troubleshoot an alternator problem. Still haven't decided the best way to hold it in the new battery box.

I just ordered some parts from YRM to. Very responsive with quick turnaround. They clearly have stock on the shelf ready to ship.

i think it was about $50 and $12 import duty. it arrived very quickly via UPS, probably could have asked for a cheaper shipping method and saved some money.

Seat rails and fixings cost the same.

Thanks for sharing. Great pictures. I have to do mine in the future as well. Makes it a bit easier to see a step by step progress.

YRM is/was a husband and wife team operating from their home. They may have grown. I think everything I have bought from them is higher quality than original and far better than other aftermarket suppliers. Glad to see others supporting this vendor.

My parts came in today. Nice solid parts with good welding and galvy coats on sill rails.
