Default Seat Spacers

How are you guys making your custom MDF 1'' seat spacers?

I'm ready to order some 5/8'' seat spacers from fox acoustics but I feel like they won't be big enough and these little things can't be that hard to make.

Anybody here have any how-to's or at least pics of any so i can look into this and maybe build my own?

I made mine out of 3/4" mdf. If you go to 1" you'll probably run into problems with the back of the seat not hooking on properly. Just take the seat out and measure the width of the bracket and where the holes are and just transfer that onto the mdf and cut it out.

I honestly don't even know what these seat spacers look like.. anybody have pics so i can base some decisions?

Or should i say screw it and just spend $12 on the 5/8'' spacers from fox acoustics.

Sorry I don't have any pictures of mine. But they're literally a rectangular piece of MDF the same size as the bottom of the seat bracket with two holes drilled in each one for the seat bolts. There's not much to it....
