How Is The Seat Foam Held On?

I just took the seat foam cover off the back of my 1970 Cadillac. I noticed that the seat foam is secured to a material that is held to the frame with hog rings. Question : how is the foam secured to this material? Was it originally glued to it? I cant find any signs of it being sewn on or anything else. So I'm thinking it must have been secured with some sort of adhesive.

Yes, it would have been glued on with contact adhesive.

Would you recommend to make a replacement piece the same way?

Yes. That's just as easy as any other way. It has to hold the foam in place while the seat covers go on, and then the seat covers will help hold the foam in place.
