Dan,,,
Makes sense now,, thanks. Making the center section in multiple pieces has the added benefit that I can get to the bolts that will hold the seat in place. When I first started down this path I looked at a number of seats in the junkyard and in particular one out of a 914. The center section of that was removable like we are talking about and it was backed with a thin piece of fiberboard that the material was glued and stapled to. Should that be the way these should be built?

As for me building these,,, well I sort of did. I mocked it up in wood and cut the metal,,, then had them welded up by a local shop as I donít TIG.

The wood mock up
