1923 Ford Model TT cushion “after”

Here are the cushions after reupholstering.  Bare seat spring units are still available, and I chose to go with the reproduction units for the seat base cushions only.  I was able to reuse the long backrest unit, since it was in much better condition than the seat spring units.  Instead of using the traditional hog rings to fasten the cover to the seat frame, these have a metal channel around the base of the spring frame that must be bent closed over a welted seam.  Others may have a wooden base frame that the cover can be stapled to.modelttruck (2)
