I have a 2010 Thomas went thru inspection and the metal panel in the seat has come undone . The metal is bent and ripped . I am thinking new seat frame instead of working the metal out and trying to re weld it . Has anyone done that or have you just replaced the metal frame ? if you replaced the metal frame who did you go too ?

not sure I'd be doing much in the way of seat repair, Liability wise. If someone gets hurt and you fixed the seat, even if you made it better than what it was, you open your self up to a ton if headache. :(

Glad you found a new home Doug. If I were looking for a Thomas seat frame I'd call Randy at Schetky or Larry at Freightliner NW, depending on who delivers, and gives me good service.
