I was once the proud owner of a $1,600 aluminum decking that was used as an airplane seat for many years.
I loved it, but I could never figure out why.
As a kid, my parents would get me to put the deck on the floor, and I would use the metal tray to hold it on.
After a few years, I had it replaced with a stainless steel seat, which has never looked so nice.
The problem was that it was also not sturdy enough to hold up on my own.
Eventually, I discovered a way to attach aluminum to a stainless decking, and the aluminum was now my only option for seating.
My new aluminum seat has been my life for the past three years.
