Did Ilmberger ever produce a single seat cowl for the 12S

a 'google-image' search doesn't cough up any pics of one, so would have to suppose that there was never one produced?

My mate had a carbon seat cowl fitted and had to take the innards from his original seat. He wasn't sure what make it was but thought it was Ilmberger. I cannot find any info on it but their 12S parts are now understandably few in number. I've got an FF carbon seat cowl and wandered what they recommend to stick the fittings to the underside of the seat cowl. Its the same seat pan from both the seat cowl and the pillion seat apart from a bit of fettling for where the bum pad goes. What I want to know is what glue/silicone I can use. Any suggestions?

I should have thought a tube of CT1 would do the trick, waterproof and bonds anything to anything, pricey but good, loads of trade people recommend it.

Thanks Phil, that looks to be the stuff I need. They also do an aerosol called multi solve - good for removing sticky stuff from plastic panels
