Very nice indeed :D
Where did you get the seat done? I'm thinking of getting my passenger seat done to match the rider's seat

Cheers

Ha Ha.... purely for cosmetic reasons Chris. I'd like the EO rear seat cowl but can't find one so I'm thinking of getting the rear seat re-covered so it has the appearance of the OE cowl

..... although now I look at the pictures a bit closer I think it's a re-painted OE cowl and not a custom seat cover as I first thought doh! :oops:

Oh for a Cristal ball Dave, I had a spare when I bought Gus bodywork and let it go to a forum member for what I’d payed :cry:

Had an expensive year up to now Phil so unfortunately no holiday this year and no paint job!!
Not sure of the paint scheme now - cannot do the Mamola scheme now - that would just make them too common!! Anyone from the forum good with Photoshop?
