Thanks ben
Nope, but personally I wouldn't want that type of backrest -it'll eventually tear through the bolt holes where it bolts on unless Ribraff is putting a big chunk of ply reinforcing on the inside rear of the pods.

The type that bolt on the side of the pod are far stronger.

Depends whose seat pods you are using Osprey boxes have said re-inforcement built in

If you can afford to wait I should have 4 off of these type available in 2 to 3 months time as I am getting wingbacks made up.

I had a backrest made up at a local metal fabrication unit. I then had a local upholsterer make the cushion using marine ply (which i cut to size) and waterproof / mould resistant foam and covers.

All in about 160 for the back rest. It also was designed so that it bolted on from the side and i glassed in reinforcing ply inside the console too.

I can put a bit of Ply in the back if required but the side mounted ones make more sense if you can get hold of them.

I'll try to get some pics and a few measurements over the weekend, assuming the rain stops for long enough
I have just remembered , mine are not exactly the same, the upper mount has been modified by one Mr Biffer of this parish , so as to clear the seat catch, but you can have a look at the pics and decide for yourself whether you are interested.

Ok, some pretty crappy pics of the backrests, but I think that they give sufficient info.
In the first you can see how the top bracket has been modified for the seat catch. In the second you can see the general layout, and in the third you can just make out that the modified bracket is infact quite substantial.
As I said before, bear in mind that they will not be available for at least a couple of months............

Suspect so, but probably only in some of the detail. Roy used to get his made by an outfit in the midlands area, mine were made down here on the south coast. However, they were modelled on pictures of ones that Roy had had made previously, if that helps.

I like them Ian. How much for 2? I'd need to change the back rest to black buy that's not a big job
