Booster seat for a '39 B?

I was wondering if any one has a sort of booster seat on thier B or C.... I am just getting done with rebuilding mine and don't have a new seat yet. The old one is rather beat but still has some padding to it. But I was up the hill the other day and ran the tractor out of gas. I walked back to the tractor shed and grabbed a jerry can. After filling the tank, I sat on the jerry can on the way home. Being up another 6" was sooo much more confortable for me... I'm only 6' tall so I would think that other have screwed with this issue....

Also does anyone have a good picture of what the foot rests should look like? I have seen bent diamond plate ones for sale on Ebay but I have also seen a reference to wooden ones.... I have holes in the square tube there so I assume that something fits into those....

I hear you when you say taller is more comfortable. I have two seats for my C. One is about two inches taller than the other and is so much more comforable than the other.You would not think that little would matter but it does!
The only difference in the seats is that the low one is just a sheet of plywood for the base and the tall one has a 1x2 on edge under the plywood that sits on the metal frame. The 1x2 is over the seat fabric and also protects it from rubbing on the frame. Simple fix and works great.

On one of my B's, it looks like someone took apart the seat frame and welded 2X6 inch angle on the sides instead of the 2X4 angle iron to raise the seat. Makes it look like an original except higher.
