    Seat heating pads in a P500! Interesting. Getting cooler and time to remove the heat mat for that mid seat engine heat.

    If you are referring to the single gun mount inside the cab, I used two pieces of 3/4 " strapping, about 1 1/2 " long, drilled out a center hole and tapped the hole to to match the threads on the gun mount. I put one on the outside and one inside with two small screws and nuts holding them in place on the dash.

    Don't know how they'll really work, but I'll have a pretty good report on them by this time next month. The Sojoy heating pads were $73.00 and I paid $20.00 to have the pads installed. I ran the wiring and installed the switches, one for the driver and one for the passenger, has 3 positions, Off-Low-High. At 71 yrs old, I like heat on my bottom and back when it's cold. You get wimpy with age.

    That's awesome. I was also wondering if you attached a Kolpin gun scabbard somewhere? If so, how did you affix?

    I added the Kolpin gun case for hunting in Colorado, has be carried in a enclosed gun case. I mounted it to the 3/4" plywood Base I made that is attached to the back frame rack which is held in place using zip ties. Can have the whole thing off as one unit in a matter of seconds.

    The Kolpin gun case I used is not the same one you have pictured, I have to get the model I used and let you know.
