    Sheepskin seat - placement

    Hi, looking for advice on the sheepskin and how you have the mounted.

    Is it as simple as throwing it on or do others use webbing to attach?

    Thanks

    2 lengths of inch wide elastic. Fasten it to the sheepskin using contact adhesive.

    Cut a slot on each side, about an inch in from the edge and near the side frame rails. Loop Velcro through the slits around the frame and back onto itself.
