Hey Guys,
I'm new to "this" forum...

But not new to building aircraft...

Whoa... that sounds like some expert... That's not me...

Just doing "my" best...
.
I have a pretty detailed Building Log at:
.
http://www.wingsforum.com/viewforum.php?f=320&sid=6b42244b58f3a0619bd4a499a1211c2a
.
I have an article in the EAA Experimenter...

It's in the Aircraft Spruce "Kit" area of the Buttercup.
.
The Buttercup , like other Wittman aircraft , are pretty

straight forward Tube and Fabric building...

PS Wow... Can't put PICTURES up here ????

I've got about 2,000 building pictures at my other forums...

Pictures are a BIG part of building for someone like me...
.
OK... I see there "IS" a way to add pictures... But it doesn't look like

a very efficient way to do it...

We have spell check... So we're not COMPLETELY in the STONE AGE.

If I can remember how...

I'll add more pix...

These are High Back seats from "Jeg's" about $30 bucks each...

Seat covers are another $30 bucks...

They are a little heavy... and wide...

But are still very strong after I trimmed them to fit ,

and lightened them by drilling holes ...

Even tho I drilled the crap outa them...

I left a structural frame that you can see...

I got the seats down to 7-3/4 lbs each...

With covers... they are 9-3/4 lbs

Not bad for High back and Lumbar Support.
