Covering An Aluminum Bucket Seat

I'm new here,,, great site. I need a few opinions on upholstering my seats. I'm not sure if what I'm thinking is the best way,,, would like your opinions as I've seen the talent this forum has.

I have a pair of aluminum seats that that I made that I'd like to get covered in leather. My though is to use 2" foam for the side bolsters, under my legs, rear end, then have it taper off to 1" as it moves up my back toward the headrest and shoulder support area. My initial thought is to have the two bolsters around my hips and legs to be separate pieces and then have the center section snap in place below my legs and above my head/shoulder area. Maybe held in place via some Velcro.

I'm thinking my ideas are probably not the best,,, so the question is how would you go about upholstering a seat like this?
