Made a 2nd toolbox cover

I finally got out the saw and sandpaper and followed my outline pretty much like the one that was on the bike when I got it. Taking offers? Still can't figure out how to post full size pics, so lets start with these.

Just insert cut out notches on lid where old lid attached. The notches lock in the bottom of the cover to the lip.

Fits like a glove !!

That`s nice work shark88. I like that flame pattern on the Corbin seat too.
I believe the Mustang seats are about an inch higher than stock. Does the Corbin seat raise or lower you in the saddle?

I really like the pattern too, it does seem to lower it a bit also. It gets more comfortable the more I ride it.
