Ha-ha, thanks Tom. I watched a YouTube video on upholstering a motorcycle seat and learned all their tricks.
I just have to get more experience at using the machine. Everything ended up lop-sided.
1x 5' section of 1/2" conduit - $2 (Lowes)
1/2" nuts and bolts - $1(Lowes)
1/2" x6" x24" red oak plank - $6 (Lowes)
1/2 yard of brown vinyl - $5 (JoAnn fabric)
Green piping - $2 (JoAnn fabric)
I did find the padding at work. It's 1" cold lagging that I cut to the right size. Very comfortable, as it would turn out.
Time to go mount the battery again.
