919 Back Rest

I thought I would share this idea with you guys. I went the auto wreckers and bought a head rest, there is all different colour and shapes, $10 here. That was the hardest part, it took two hours to find the right one. Next I drilled two holes in that silly grab bar and there you go. The only mistake I made was not having both holes drilled at exactly the same angle. So I had to bend the head rest a little.

A little ghetto, but good for you.

How much bend does it have when you apply pressure?

The psychological soothing the sight of a backrest gives is often more important than anything else.

It is a innovative idea

I'd imagine with a small hole only minimum pressure - you'd not be wanting to have vigorous sex up against it

It does give me an idea for a custom bracket replacing the grab bar .....

That will still happen, backrest or not. They lean forward and hang on for dear life. I've had them almost choke me to death before.

It's totally solid. Like I said, I had to bend it a little as the one hole was drilled at a little different angle to the other one. So I a really hard time bending the one side back to align it up with the other side. The two bars of the back rest are always parallel but they are at an angle so as the back is square to the seat. Therefore use a template when drilling the two holes to keep the same angle.
