i've been looking at this for a few days, and there's something i'm not happy with, i'm not sure what it is, i was thinking of making it slightly narrower, but Ian think's it ok, i'm going to put some sort of moulding feature on each side to break up what will be just a grp wing, maybe that's what it is, i'm used to seeing stainless wing's with upholstery in them, anyone local is welcome to have a try and give me there views

Yes it is. The forward seat lifts up and is hinged on the front and the rear seat base slides forwards for rear access or come out completely.

Hi

Just throwing my 2p worth

Would it not look better on the eye if the top of the centre section followed the line of the stainless hoop and give a little more support?
