I have been thinking of removing my rear bench and retro fitting a sunpad in it's place. Don't want to be able to lower it to a bench but leave it in the sunpad position or remove it entirely. Anyone done this or have any thoughts about how to do it? If you have post some pics please.

there was a guy that did it once, he's long gone and the pics didn't make it through one of our forum updates.

his was somewhat molded a little ways around the motor box, it looked good.

that's all Igot:(

It's a whole instructional thing with pictures in a word doc. I'll see if the word doc will post tomorrow.

What I have is a "how to" put together by Larry, who runs ski-it-again that he did when he had his 1993 Pro Star. It's similar, but not quite that large.

if it doesn't
get it to me, and I'll host it, or turn it into a pdf and get it back to you

bottom line, I want a copy;)

No thats not it. The one east tex sent me was a raised platform and is open underneath it. Although this one you posted is another way of doing it. I just like and want the open spot under the deck. It'll be a good place for jackets etc. Also if you ever wanted a fat sac it would be out of the way under there.
