Sorry. When I said that sew foam comes with a variety of backings, obviously one of them is Velcro. Car manufacturers have been using this and things like it for years. Another thing they have been using is Velstick, which is a plastic strip about an inch wide with the hook side of Velcro built into it. The Velstick is attached (glued) to the seat foam where you want a seam held down. All you do then is sew a loop-like side to the seam on the seat cover you want to hold down. Yes, it eliminates listing wires, and makes it easier to assemble and adjust the seat covers. I will post pictures tomorrow when I get to work.

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