Looks good! Nice work Ben! I agree with Brett sporty but still stock looking, best of both worlds.

You are becoming quite the pro! Very nicely detailed even though no one will see it. You will provide joy to many men's asses. biggrin

Lower cushion paper cpvered listing rods ready to be installed



Installed on the springs, note hogrings every so often attaching rod to springs




Burlap (notched out at the rear to fit spring recess)- burlap does not get hogrinnged.


Lay out the center jute so that you have a thumbs gap on either side between it and the paper listing rod under the burlap. Trim the jute padding as needed.

Center jute installed (cenbered between rods)- jute is hogringed through the burlap.


Bolster jute layed out


bolster jute hogringed on

Two more pics for you--

 

One shows where you would add the paper covered rods across the seat to stiffen things up. Clamp it to each of the springs that it crosses.

if you find it is too stiff after its done, you can simply cut the rod between springs to allow them to loosen up (start at the outter most and work inward until you are happy with the feel)

Remember that bucket seats are supposed to be softer in the center so you sit IN the seat, not ON the seat.

 

Second pic is showing the rear corner repair. Trim the old spring back to where the line shows in the photo. THen clamp the repair peice on, clamping to two loops of the old spring. The side brace will then clamp onto the new spring, and the paper covered listing rod will clamp in their repsective spots. 

 

Be sure that the peice is captured in the metal hook on the frame, don't forget to hammer it shut again if you pry it open to access it.
