That all makes pretty good sense. Once I strip off all the springs I will be left with a round tubing "hoop" frame. I think I will inset the plywood flush with the back of the frame. that way the material will not have to go over the edges of the wood, it will just go over the steel tubing frame just as it used to. The panel insert on the seat back is a great suggestion. I would think that would make the covers easier to get on for sure. Have you ever had any experience with "whisper" vinyl material. I found a local source for that brand and it would sure be easier to buy it local than mail order material. Espescially if I need to go back and get a bit more if I run short. It feels real nice and is somewhat economical. But this is my first experience with interior work. I'll try to post some more pics of the process as I go just in case anyone cares. Thanks again!
