Default G9 rear seat, home-made

I bought my '93 G9 for $500. and with a few inexpensive purchases she was looking pretty sharp. I wanted to add a rear seat but the choices are slim pickings and pretty darn pricey to boot. Since I own a welder, a chop saw, and a buddy owed me a favor, I cashed it in on a length of 1.25" square tubing and a 24" length of 1" square tubing he had in his shop.
I started off by removing the seat backrests and fabricating a couple of brackets to mount the seat on to. Next I cut and welded the backrest frame and down tubes. A few hours of cutting and welding and she was starting to take shape. Once the framing was tack welded, I removed the unit, added mounting tabs (for the cushions), and finished welding it up. A couple coats of gloss black spray paint and it was off to make the cushions. I bought some vinyl upholstery and some 2" foam from the fabric store and glued and stapled it onto my plywood mounting bases. Before I covered the bases, I used 4 prong T-nuts (1/4-20 thread) so I could bolt them onto the frames when they were done. Last step was to buy two pieces of black pipe to bend and cut for grab handles, then a coat or two of gloss black spray paint. Everything bolted together and with a grand total of $55. spent (and about thirty hours of labor) I had my rear seat. Here are the pics.

A whole lot nicer than many of the "homemade" seat kits i have seen over the years. Doesnt it feel good to fire up that welder and save some cash?

Great job on the seat it looks very nice. As said, it's nice when you can make something yourself rather than spend the $$ to go out and buy one.
