I've got photos of the seat frame out of the ANGRMS PL carriage that I've been sand blasting and repainting, as well as some photos of the seat back and base, complete with original horse hair filling. Are those suitable for this thread?

Yes, that would be interesting thanks.  8)

This is the seat frame from PL111 - Rail Motor Passenger and Luggage Carriage.

The backrest can be moved, to allow for always facing in the direction of travel. Took about 10-12 hours to sandblast all of the parts. Only 11 more seat frames to go!

This is the seat back and seat base. We cut it open so the motor trimmer could see what the frame inside looked like. Suspect it is the original horse hair from the 1930's. Our intention with this back, is to remove half the cover from one side, seal the remaining cover with some clear perspex and put it on display, to show the internals without it falling out.

We need 14 sets made up (two spare sets) from scratch, looking at about $10k all up.
