Gap Between Plywood Frame and Body

My T-Bucket has a console that goes up between the seats. What gap should I leave between the plywood frame and the body on the outside and the console on the inside for the Ultraleather, etc. ?

I don't understand what you're asking, could you re-phrase your question please?

Sorry.
When I get done with making the plywood frame, how much space should be between the top edge of the frame and the body...1/4", 3/8", 1/2"?
I don't want the gap so narrow that I can't install the seats once they are upolstered or so wide it looks stupid.

No problem, now I understand. I would leave 1/4" all the way around, on the back and sides. When you attach the foam to the plywood, let it hang over 1/2" all the way around. That should make it fit nice and snug.
