Finished Seat

O.K., This is what we started with. You can see on the seat bottom on the driver's side that it is sagging in the back and on the side. This is caused by the broken springs.

After stripping, re-padding, repairing the springs, and re-styling, this is the end result: It now has a new deck pad, 1" of 2665 foam, and the fabric is Ultraleather.
