I believe I will take your advice and stick with the originals even if they take me a while to complete. Thanks again.
Look at this thread, it will tell you how to re-pad and repair your old seat. Trust me when I tell you that your seat looks a lot worse than it actually is. Re-padding an old car seat. Also look at this thread: Seat Spring Repair

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
