DanTwoLakes I should have said: hog ring the deck pad to the border wire around the perimeter of the seat springs.

Why not start a project journal like I did with my Chevy Truck Bench Seat? It's much easier to post pics.

Personally, I think Dan's posts should be required reading for anyone contemplating something like this - why this man isn't a superstar in the industry is beyond me. He not only turns out a good product, he's just one hell of a guy.

DanTwoLakes Just lay the pad over the springs and hog ring it down, it doesn't have to be tight, it just needs to be kept from shifting around. Yes, the hog rings will go completely through the deck pad. The next step is the foam. That should be glued to the deck pad just enough to keep it from shifting around. That can be done with foam to foam type glue, but you can use contact adhesive if you want. I use foam to foam glue because it sets up quicker and I don't have to wait for it to dry. Also, it's more forgiving, so if I have to take the foam off to re-position it, I can. If you have to do that, don't let the glue dry before doing it.

65 Comet Bench Seats

I'll use this thread for all my pictures and questions as I work the bench seats from my 65 Comet.

I'm following Dan's tutorials and I have stripped down the rear bench and all my springs are still in good shape. The first thing I did was to install the stake wire across all the springs using three prong clips. I'll post a pictures soon.

The next step is to fasten the flex pad.

Question: How snug do I fasten that to the springs? I see in Dan's tutorial that he wraps the pad over the edges. Will the hog clips tear through the pad?

thanks
