Turner 950 seats in detail

The lightweight Turner seat is constructed from a Glass-fibre Reinforced Polyester bucket shell with integrated backrest. The cushion can be removed, giving access to the seat mounting bolts.

The seats can be restored. The GRP bucket shell should be checked for cracks and repaired where needed. The old covers can be used as a pattern or read the description further on. New foam (of a higher density) is required for the cushions.Turner bucket seat GRP bucket shell

The backrest cover is made of black vinyde with white piping. It has 6 flutes (6 x 43⅓ = 260 mm) and side pieces, all filled with white cotton.  Between the cover and the GRP the backrest is filled with cotton padding to give better support and some form of “comfort” (see photo).
