    In another thread I mentioned having near-idenitcal vinyl that I was going to use for my seatcbacks. Josh mentions he has "new direct match material."

    We have been popping the brackets for a while. Figured might as well make the backs from stainless too.

    8 sets and counting. Only complaint so far was the original purchaser saying that the metal was a little too thick making install a bit difficult. But...we've addressed that by switching to a thinner material, and since then no issues that I'm aware of.

    Working on finally getting these things on. Wow. I have the original .125 thickness. It's a tough go but I know how solid they are once they're in place.

    I'm starting a couple inches below the fasteners where the side brackets will end up, and sliding the whole assembly north until the top bracket latches into the top of the seat frame. Correct? Might I need to bend the top bracket a bit to get it to find it's way into the top of the seat frame? I want to ask before I start bending/breaking things.

I'd like to make something on them, but I don't want them to seem outrageous either.
    Are you still doing these? What is the cost?
