Those are the same seats. But the area in question is more in the shoulder portion. No headrests. You get that much definition of seperatioin with 1/2" sew foam, and that chrome piece pulls it in further giving more definition.

Either way, with that tyoe of seat, you maintain shape with hog rings, listing wires and or glue. The hard part is shaping them consistently if you don't use a mold or shaping guide.
