Squoddyboddy might be able to help you, she customized her seat with her screen name. Looks great.

I am interested too. I just had my wife's name embroidered in to some marine grade vinyl for her rear seat. Need someone who can mount it for me. Found out my staple gun is way to wimpy.

if you want the name its best to have somebody embroider it for you first, then put it on. My staple gun was too wimpy, too, but I used it anyway and a hammer. The trick is to stretch the vinyl by heating it with a blow dryer or heat gun. After a year mine is needing to be stretched again, but I haven't had time. I covered the seat on the vfr and it looked great! Vinyl is fairly cheap at a fabric store or you can buy online. You can definitely save a lot of $$ doing it yourself.

Looks good. That's how the VFR came out - nice and tight. Mine isn't as tight, because the shiny vinyl just won't stretch.
