Anton Piller has provided notes on how he made a rear seat squab/base for his Y/T from scratch. Obtaining an original is like looking for hen's teeth as they are even rarer than ones for the Y and YB. (At the time of making this entry, the webmaster DOES HAVE a complete spare Y/T rear seat, and a Y/YB one too so if you need either, make contact with me). These notes from Anton have now been included in the Hints and Tips page.
