I've got an early '76 Westy and I know they changed seats rails half way through the year but i'm also seeing Westy seats and Bus seats. I'm trying to figure out what seat back to get (i'm replacing the cushions in the seat). Is this the correct seat cushion? It just doesn't look right to me.

Here is the correct shape from Wolfsburg West.

And please, unlike my buddy Bill who continues to ignore me, consider finding another vendor for your parts. His experience and stories alone keep me from buying parts from your linked vendor.

He never seems to get the correct parts, regardless of part's numbers. And when he does, very low quality components.

I would almost bet the seat pad you've linked is supplied by the same manufacturer as WW, but as you've probably already noticed, it's cheaper. I've used these seat pads, they're nice products.

Good luck,

Sam

Perfect thanks. I had found the WW seatback but looked at the shipping compared to MM and found MM was cheaper on that. I have also heard stories of MM not being what they used to be so point taken Smile
