ok I have a really easy solution to the whole problem of covering the seat after it is bolted on. all you do is cover you new seat pan with packing tape and a realease agent and the make a fiberglass duplicate of of the seat area. upholster the new shell you made and then bolt you seat down to the frame. if you put industrial velcro between your upholstered piece and the tail that is bolted down, it will never come off. you can get it off if you need to by pulling the velcro apart. I just drilled four holes thru the top of my seat pan and used existing holes in my frame. when you get it all done it doesn't even look like you have two pieces. it just looks like one nice seat pan. much easier than weklding a bunch of bars together and all your hardware is hidden. if you like this idea let me know and I can send you pictures of the step by step process. it's super easy my 2 year old can do it and it'll look fabulous!!!
