Backrest- Too Far Back

Howdy All, I have either a Rocky or Bill Meyer seat (can't remember which) with the fixed backrest. I need to make some sort of adjustment to the backrest to make the edge of the backrest closer to my back (about an inch or two closer is what I would guess).

Has anyone put an extra cushion or done something else on these types of fixed backrests that works in this situation?

Thanks.

James

Re: Backrest- Too Far Back

You can easily have an inch of foam added to the backrest, you'll of course need to have a new cover made to accomodate it. This is something a local upholstery shop could easily do..

Thanks Ron. Sounds like a good idea to me.
