Hi everyone!

The seat vinyl production began on Thursday last week and the pour-foam process begins on Monday!  

If you need to make that final payment, please contact me directly so we can get that taken care of for you. 

Single seats will ship first from the manufacturer, and multiple seats will ship from HAPCO in Newburgh, IN.  

Thanks for all of your patience.  The seats look TERRIFIC!!

Here is a photo using the older prototype skin.  The new skins ran last week with the old-style Deere font.  

Hope this helps.

Is there other styles or is old-style JD the only one?      The seat in the picture does look nice.

Thanks for showing us all your seat. It looks great. :watch_over_fence:

 

 

I had a friend today asking if I knew where he could get a JD seat cover. SO where can we get one?

Go to www.hapcoparts.com and place your orders there. They are an all John Deere reproduction parts/decals website. Anything you buy, is made to original spec's and you won't be disappointed.

This is what Kate posted on WFM:

 

HI guys, 

The seat is in production right now and it's better than we ever expected! Looks and feels like the original from the factory! 
Since the wait has been much longer than we would have liked, we are including a packet with each seat which includes the trim, the connecting tab, and the installation instructions. The trim is good and firm and with this trim, clips will not be necessary. Again, this is at no cost to you. 

If you need to make a final deposit, please call me directly at 
812-455-5870. 

I have a photo, but I can't seem to reduce the size enough to post it. So sorry. You can get on the HAPCO web page and view if. 

 

 

I received my email and hope to pay for my two cushions today and will share pics when they arrive.

Thanks everyone!

Yes, just John Deere seats.  We may venture into other brands in the future.  This was QUITE an undertaking, nearly five years in the process.  

The first round of single seat orders will be shipping out on Thursday!  I wish I could be there to see it happen.  I hope we get photos from some of our customers and will share those with you all!

Kate,

 

I just wanted to let you know, that even though I haven't had the need to purchase one of these seat cushions, they look great. You guys have done a very good job reproducing them. I visited the other site last night, and the flack that those guys are giving you and Brandon, just isn't right. Those guys just don't understand that these seats aren't made for closeness, but rather exactly as the originals. I understand the time it takes to search out the right manufacturer, and then submit and get approvals from John Deere. Some guys just want what they want, when they want it, and won't stand for anything else. Don't let the words of these guys get to you. You did great, and the product shows it. If it were me, and the money wasn't needed to fulfill the order, I'd revoke the orders from the bad mouth or impatient guys, refund their money, and tell them to go and try to find another seat elsewhere.

 

Keep your chin up girl! It will all work out, and eventually, everyone will be satisfied!  :thumbs:

 

Troy
