A little sun, a bit of a ride, a little falling out and it is time to renew the rear seat.
Refreshment is achieved, the red seat is now much more like paint on a motorcycle and the surface of the material has a "carbon fiber" look that is very noticeable :naughty:
This afternoon I spent approx. one hour of work and this is the result.

Did you get the 12" by 55" size they sell? I just measured my rear seat and it is real close to the 12", perhaps not enough to wrap around. Also, did you use a heat gun and or glue or just staple it?
Thanks,
ZZ

The site says the material is waterproof but breathable. I'm thinking it will allow water through to the foam and seat pan. Of course, that's not really a problem if you keep the bike away from water.

It looks great. Gives me all kind of ideas about what I would like to put it on!

I do not know the exact size of the material because I bought this piece from a friend who made a mistake in the order so he had the material for at least another 4 seats :)
I didn't use heat gun or glue because there is no need, I just overlapped the edge and staple it. The material is thinner than the original and easy to shape.

@ oldbutspry
I have not tried to test the material with water, but I'll try soon.

Today I washed the bike, unfortunately a bit of water passes through the material and soaked a sponge, so it's not a recommendation for the driver's seat.
If I decide to try again (I have just enough material) I will certainly put a layer of flexible plastic sheet in between.
