After a lot of research & asking around I attempted making 1/2 a seat pan out of fiberglass lol. I've never used fiberglass before so I was a little concerned about wrecking it.
I had a seat pan sent to me but the tail didn' fit my rear fender, so I cut off the rear & spliced a new rear into the existing pan. Here's some pics. Anyone have any pointers please feel free to share:



Damn this shit is messy!

Love seeing how this is done. So just cloth and resin until you get it about 1/4" thick? I assume you will glass the rear seat bracket in later? Very cool. Thanks for posting!

Thanks guys. Here's what I'm sending out to have upholstered.


The upholstery guy will make any adjustment necessary with strengthening & fitment. He really just needed the shape of my rear fender.

I had placed the seat tang under the fiberglass before I started so that I'd have the exact spot for it to be attached.
