You can see we found some black cotton duck. The guy who sewed it trout bigger is better - still, it worked.

I lace transversely first with one piece of rope, then go fore and aft with another, to give myself 30-second access to the reservoirs.

Here is the rear sling. It is only a year old, and not black, darn it. When I sew them I attach an extra flap that just lays over the lacing. Apparently not necessary - our cushions do not care.

Two of the three are upside down. Not my fault, I did each one the same way.

Thanks Bob for the photos. I agree lacing on top makes sense. And you are right, the cushions don't care. Plus lacing on top makes for easy inspection and removal. Appreciated. Kent

As a note, for topping off brake reservoirs, i bend over the front seat with flashlight, remove the cap screw, fill a syringe with hydraulic fluid and fill top of master cylinder to the brim, reinstall cap screw, dab up any extraneous hydraulic fluid with the paper towels I placed around the base of the master cylinder, done

I like those brakes...can you see a difference from the originals, Bob?

Yep. Pedals are always in exactly the same place.
