Tom, this thread is quite good;

http://www.mapleleafup.net/forums/sh...ght=Seat+backs

In fact the seat cushions are ready at £29 each.

I recently had some seat backs made, will see how many I have, welcome to borrow some originals.

Another useful thread link below:

http://www.mapleleafup.net/forums/sh...highlight=hemp

I will take a picture of the padding used in the original rear seat pads. The one in the picture with the flaps on with the 'lift the dot' is a Windsor Carrier rear seat cushion in case anyone was wondering, exactly the same as Ford/Brit carrier rear pad but with flaps which go under a metal seat frame.

I've seen sponge, hemp and horsehair variations of original cushion filling.

Hi Kevin, my rear seat cushions arrived today and they look great. Thank you for putting in the effort and getting them made.

If you're looking to get a batch of front cushions done could you put me down for a set.

Thanks again,

Tom.

Tom, will make you a set of front seat swabs copied from this original in same material as your rear ones.

Zbyszko, will make you front and rear, but not doing the front back cushions at the moment.

Cheers Kevin, youíre a star. Thereís no rush for them as I have a set of canvas seats in there at the moment, but theyíre getting really mucked up by climbing in and out with muddy and oily boots.

Let me know when you need payment.
