New Seat Now w/ PICS

Postby Jason (IL) » Thu Jul 04, 2013 7:14 am

Got my new seat in for Cubby. I been getting my from Rual King supply online. They are the Cheapest I can find and I think they are good. They are a Duck twill Canvas type?? What ever they are I like them over the Silver mesh canvas. My mesh canvas shredded and fraid so I replaced it.

With shipping and tax it was an even $112.00 arrived yesterday ordered Monday morning before 8am. Not bad.

Thanks Jason, I need a new seat. I ordered the silver canvas with brass drain hole. Found a coupon code for 10% off (FIREWORKS) and got free shipping when I checked out with PayPal. Total was $97.17

I have been asked for pictures so here it goes.

First my old seat after 9 yrs. I got it from OEM and it started fraying and pulling apart in a year or so. It got worse last summer so I decided to replace now while I had in my shop.

My new Seat. The color is a bit darker shade of gray / silver. But the canvas looks to be held down better.

Jason:

The new one looks very nice. Suggest you take the old ragged one to a good auto upholstery shop. They should be able to recover that seat nicely and maybe even upgrade it to the one with the grommet and drain hole :idea: Looks like there is a lot of life in the older seat still.

Ok, I have had this seat on the tractor and at shows all summer. The seat itself is holding up great. The only problem is, the canvas is starting to turn color, a golden tanish color. I am guessing it is a reaction of water and the chemicals in the canvas or glue.

Just letting everyone know.
