Proper seat stuffing

I am working on recovering my seats in my 49 Plymouth but need a few tips. I am wondering do I use burlap over the springs or something else? Also, what kind and thickness of foam should I be using? I am stitching custom covers, so I am not too concerned about making them the exact size as the original, but I do want something comfortable! Also if there is a good supplier you can point me to that would be great also. Please help. Thanks!

Don't use burlap or cotton on your seat springs, mice love to make nests out of it. Check out this thread: CLICK HERE
