"Dan, my ref to a softer top layer of foam, according to my upholsterer, is mostly to help in making better corners, not seating comfort. "

Actually, the firmer the foam under the seat cover, the better corners it will make. Now I'm referring to seat covers that are sewn with sew foam, not necessarily to seat covers that are just fabric alone. In that case you'd need a slightly softer surface directly under the seat cover.

Thanks for all the advice, yes I know it will be a tight fit and I will be limited to a long cruise. Just looking for the best combination I can get. What can I say, a T-Bucket has always been at the top of the "Bucket List"

resto-springs

I used the stock seat riser with foam over plywood and it's not very comfortable. My 16 steel body is even smaller than the glass 23's. In The present glass bucket under construction I used another stock seat riser. and have thinking about ordering stock seat bottom springs from a T restoration catalog. Then building the seat bottom from that. Henry Ford was not very tall and he designed T's and A's to fit Him.

I ordered seat springs from Lang's that were chopped and they were still too tall, even with my chopped seat frame. IMO. That's why I went with webbing and foam.
