You can see what the flexalator did to the seat foam, so to avoid this happening with the spring assembly, I put a deck pad over the whole assembly and held it in place with hog rings. The deck pad has a soft side that goes up, and a side covered with a heavy backing material that goes against the springs. Now the foam won't get cut by the springs and the deck pad makes a great platform for the seat foam. This makes a far better seat assembly than what came with the car.
