Question anyone build a homemade rear seat? for g8

Just wondering if there are any pictures out there of homebuilt things. Everything seems to come from China so I would rather make my own.

Default Re: anyone build a homemade rear seat? for g8

I going to build one for my g22. It's fairly simple if you can weld. One inch square tubing is all you need. Don't buy it at a box store, buy it from a place that actually sells metal. I still have plenty but last time I bought some heavy wall 1" square, it was about a dollar a foot in 21' lengths.
Plywood for the seat base, not treated, just paint over with an enamel, rust olium (sp). Get the foam from a fabric shop, much better quality and you can get some that's mold resistant. Covering it is easy, get a few yards of marine vinyl off ebay, in the color you want, stretch and staple. If you want it perfect, learn to sew or take it to an upholstery shop.

To attach the seat base to the metal, I always weld some flat stock on the inside of the frame on the upper rail. Then Counter sink a bolt in the plywood, and counter sink a nut of the other side so the bolt won't go up or down. Square off the counter sink holes and fill them with epoxy. When you bolt your seat in place, the threads are hidden on the inside of the rails.

I used to build a lot of street rods, if you let your imagination run free, you can shape the plywood to what ever form you want, flat curved, angled. Cover with foam and stretch the material over it and staple to the plywood.
