Been having a bit of a play in the garage today and have come up with a back rest for my buddy seat.

It's still in it's prototype stage at the moment. But all I need to do is wind the drivers seat forward a bit and I can now sit quite comfortably on the buddy seat.

I used a seat organiser and filled the pockets with cushion stuffing, this was then fitted with poppers to a woodern back rest.

The top of the organiser fixes around the head rest and hangs behind the seat.

i think you may need a little padding as it touches the back of seat or it may tear the material,

Had the same thought myself, it looks a bit messy as well. Still in the design stage at the moment. Might try and get a large bit of foam contoured to fit the back of the seat, then cover it so it looks like it's meant be there.

Yes best to cover any sharp / hard bits so its doesnt hurt anyone (or the seat) if it moves ....

Have now filled the gap between the wood and the back of the seat with foam and have covered it all to make it look a bit neater.

It doubles up as a life jacket too in case you have to ditch in the drink! Wink
