    I think I snuck a peak when looking through Dane's Flickr. It looks nice if that is the replacement cover.

    Yeah...it's the new vertical section Charlie gave me. I won't be using the horizontal section he gave me as the one I have installed is nicer.

    You must have been lurking my Photobucket.

    You're right it was the photo bucket. I've removed mine to do the lumbar DIY.

    There is a torx screw in the back that you'll want to remove. Then you'll need to pull from the front near the pedals. There are 3 'clips' on the bottom that are the slide in and lock type. You can press then and pull a little to get them to unseat. After that pull from front to back. You will feel like it is going to break. Trick to bit breaking the front is not grabbing a handful. You really just want your finger tips pulling.

    Feel free to give me a call.

    Ahhh...ok Pip. I just ran to the store to get zip ties. Lemme give that a try. Thank you.

    I actually saw the clips and torx, but like you said, I felt like I was going to break it.
