I dont like doing  upholstery work.. but cant afford for someone else to do it for me so here's my go at it... picked up the staple gun at harbor freight 1/4" long staples... ordered the cover off of ebay.. the guys said to get this material as it is more forgiving... it's like a tweed nylon  stuff... and not the fake leather stuff... here are the before... I did trim the old one so it wasn't rippling under the new one..but held the foam on the seat back..in pics is what was left of old one after I trimmed it...

Not to bad

Nice work @Spartacus Stroppel I started doing this a few years back and have had great success.  I order my own material from amazon now and make all kinds of seat covers.  They sell material by the yard for $8 and $10 bucks so I get at least two seat covers out of one piece of fabric. 
I do a lot of molding work for houses and use my compressor for my nail gun so I went and bought an air staple gun, it makes life a lot easier.

      Bet you've never seen a Tonneau cover that can hold 2 - 4-wheelers on top of it. This is a home-made heavy duty fiberglass truck bed cover that was used on an 2000 F-350 with an 8' bed. We have used it hundreds of times but are getting out of the 4-wheeling fun. You can waterproof with a rubber seal, not included. This leaves the area under the cover open for all your gear and firewood. It is white and in great shape. 4-wheelers NOT included.

      So I have a 2001 Kawasaki prairie 300 I could not find tough country snow plow... it's a older plow too boot... so I made the plow mount and updated the plow with some skids.
      Mount plate is 1/4 steel plate and so are the pin points
      The skids are off a moose plow. I got some plumbing black pipe for holders to weld to the blade and braced it with pieces left over from the plow mount 1/4 steel...
      1/4 plate cost $45
      Skids cost $24
      U bolts and other hardware where $20 
      I got the blade free

      in this thread, I want to discuss how 4-cycle atv engines work- what the different types are...  how they are set up and which you prefer.  To start off, are the cams on ALL atv 4-strokes powered by a cam chain?  I know that on say a lawn mower or logsplitter engine, the cam is turned by the tappet, pushrods, and valve rockers.  Which is better and why?  Chain-driven cams or pushrod-driven cams?  Are the pushrods just an old version and everything is transforming to chains or the other way around...or not at all?  Just looking for some explanation, history, and downsides/upsides...
