Dynamic Forms with Nested_Forms in Rails 4

My versions are: Simple_Form: 3.0.0 Devise: 3.2.2 Rails: 4 Ruby: 2 Bootstrap: 3.0.3

Hello i have a model with attributes make,model,year,part,part_info. I want a form where the user writes the make,model,year, part and part_info. But also i would like a button "Add Additional Part" when its clicked, two more inptus for part and part_info pop. The user will pop as many inputs he wants (maybe i ll have a limit to 10). Every part has to be a single entry in my database so if the user adds 3 additional parts he should have 4 part orders in his profile.

Here is an example http://young-eyrie-3135.herokuapp.com/getstarted

Any ideas how to do this? Thanks in advance.

Brandon, I was wondering if the way it is done in this video only applies to belongs_to/has_many relationships?

I have a Cover that has Logos on it and they have a has_many_has_many relationship, so in my Cover form, I am trying to specify all the Logo's that should be displayed for that cover, but I am very confused as to how to set up my relationships in order to not only select more logos from a dropdown on the cover form, but not have it so that a Logo is only associated with one Cover, but many in future Covers.

Appreciate any help!
