    You did a really good job. Did you use the old seat as mold?

    Cbirch if you want to make your own it is easiest to find a plastics or sign company that has a thermal vacuform machine and have them make a mold of your seat. It basically heats a piece of acrylic till it's soft and them vacuum forms it around the seat. Then you make your fiberglass shell around it. I made one and attached it to the bottom portion of an extra seat I had that I stripped everything off of and cut the center portion of the plastic bottom out of it. That way I was able to use the factory latch and it fit perfect.

    I am going to check around on the vacuum forming, I have seen the machines on Myth Busters but never put any thought about doing something like this. Do you have photos or your setup?

    Just seeing this thread makes me want to do this.

    Cbrich, If you want an extra rear seat to try and fab your own fiberglass shell I'm getting ready to post one in the sale section. It's red (like that matters) $70 shipped. $50 for the seat $20 to ship.
