Adding a back rest for coxin

I have a double jockey seat. I would be keen to add a back rest for the coxin. i would expect that the back rest would be used as a leaning type post. I was considering screwing it to the underside of the seat as I want to be able to open the concel to access fuel etc.

If I screw it to the fibreglass base then I would not be able to open the seat to get access to the fuel etc

Your thoughts please

Mick I seem to remember seeing a removable backrest that slots down into holders fixed to the sides of the jockey seats, a search on here might find something. I added a backrest for the very same reason as you and found it made a big difference to driver comfort, as a bonus the backrest rail was a very useful handhold when moving fore and aft as well, well worth doing.

Good to see you've been looking at some Quality, Kernow. Shame I have to do all the hard work though

TSM, look at the attached pic of the most recent Redbay 850. The backrests lift out to facilitate the fitting of the training chart tables. I'd think you'd want some sort of retaining clip...

Oh yea right, since when has looking at pic's of Redbay's been hard work for you?

You sure those fittings are for chart tables, I'd have thought more seed tables in that greenhouse
