Nice looking cushions.

I'm guessing the seat on a HD-12 is larger than on a D4-10?

Same size- same seat assembly. Could swap that seat assembly and cushions on most of the later models- HD-12, V4-8, D4-10, d4-12, and V4-10. JB cushions are completely different.

Are you planning on getting some made for sale to others?

I talked to him about making the seat skins only. I will get a price from him. I had considered offering them. He had the right size piping to match the original.

That is beautiful work! How much does he get for them? They ought to be light enough to make it economical to ship them.

LPbolens pm sent.
Guys, what would a set be worth? Skins only? Complete with new wood and new foam? These cushions are nice but not perfect ( yes I tend to be picky :-)). But they look so good I may have to put new paint on my tractors.

The covers look real good ! The ones I had done here were $75 a set (base & back) I did make plywood bases and sealed them. He supplied foam, leather and labor. It seemed high but, where else are they going to come from. He also said they will be higher if I had any more done.

Recently, I had 4 cushions made out of black and white, with thinner

foam, for $40 US a piece. No wood involved, and no back rest.

I'd be happy at 70-80, without wood.

 

 

If you're going to paint your tractors, that speaks highly enough about

the quality. :D
