Two members (blackjackjakexxix and chubien) on here have entrusted their Bolens 1000 seats with me to see if I can recover them - hope I am up to the challenge and do not disappoint them. With winter coming on had to rearrange things in the shop to let both Bolens 1050 I own stay inside for the winter which left me with no room to set up the work table I was using this summer for the other seat projects I have done. Decided to build a simple 2x4 framework over the "summer use" 1050 so that I could use the space above it as a table top - it's a little high but it will do the job. Then I started to disassemble the seat chubien provided as it will be the test seat since it was very sticky on the top of the cover from years of duct tape applied over the vinyl - if I can create a cover for it and it turns out then I will redo the seat blackjackjakexxix provided. They have allowed me the honour to post this as a project so other can see how the Bolens 1000 seat was constructed and provide a bit more information on this "one year only" model - here are pictures of the seat coming apart. It is made up of the top and back cover which the cushions were bonded to, a red filler piece where the metal back and bottom part of the seat stop, a white plastic rear piece and the actual seat pan made up of a back, bottom and two 1/2" diameter rods that are welded to the back and bottom.
