Is that a UTOPIA backrest or RDL? The RDL backrests for the B and GA seats that I have seen all slide in from the front. If that is an RDL then it is the first one that I have seen that drops down. If a UTOPIA, good job on getting the cover to match the seat.

I have a UTOPIA on order - hope to have it next week.
