Thanks

As you can see i am taking many ideas from your pictures. I am going with a center removable cushion exposing a carpet entry step. I purchased some Starboard for the next layer and cushion bottoms.

More pictures to follow.

Instead of carpet for the center step, maybe look at a Sea-Deck like product. That stuff is made for water, it is non skid, and feels good on the feet.

Here is a photo of my 99 Sportstar backseat. The only photo I could find.

The other seats utilize a thick plastic material. Would be nice to find a sheet of that material and build from that.

Here are a few photos of what I have. The current seat sits so low and I can't leave it there while towing or it would possibly fly out!











Any suggestions or pictures of your Sportstar/Prostar back seat would be great!!
Thanks
I have the same. Any idea how/where the snaps work? I can't find the mates....

Sorry for the delay, I got LASIK surgery yesterday so I was out of commission. My center piece is right about 15" wide.

Keep those pictures coming, it looks good so far!

I can see MC got wise and changed the weird 1998 sportstar 19 design to what you have.
