Question seat mod issues... HELP!!!

so i'm installing a studded seat from a 2007 VN900 on my 1998 VN750 and i'm having a few issues:
i used pictures i saw on others' posts on here and other places as well as my own know how (or lack there of apparently). i made my bracket and installed it on the seat in the same place i saw everyone else doing it. problem is that the hook in the front of the seat is too far back to "latch".
is there another mounting bracket i need to secure the front of the seat or something along those lines?

Need a little more info here... There have been multiple ways of doing this mod...

Take a pic or two real fast and upload them for us if you have the time..

When I did my VN900 Seat MOD... I installed the latch for the front of the seat at the rear of the gas tank first. (Yes I does not go the same spot that the Stock seat does. You have to fabricate a spot for it) I started there so I could make sure it was secure and then worked my way back...

Anyhow.. Give us a lil more info and I'll do my best to help you out.

Accomplishments;

Changed Final Drive Fluid
Iridium Plugs

NGK Spark Plug Wires

ok, so once i actually bolted it all together (just mocked up before), it fits together fine. new question though:

is there a place i can get new side rails? i don't want to have to cut these up and (1) risk making a bad cut, and (2) so i can put it back to stock someday. if i could find some that don't have the sissy bar attachement part it would be great!
