After further consultations with some forum members and exchanges with Mac's, I have now been advised by Mac's (Eckler's) to send the backrest cover to the "Vendor" - Thunderbird Headquarters! I asked if I could return it to Lockport and was not given permission to do so. As a result I will be shipping the cover to Thunderbird Headquarters in California. It appears that at least for some items Eckler's just acts as a distributor for items from other vendors.
