72 bucket seat frame
I’m converting my 72 to buckets from a bench. After looking at original frames (crazy expensive) we decided to buy repros from OPGI. The 2 we got have different springs “frame” heights. I’m assuming the one that is level with the top of the frame is correct, but was hoping to get some advice from someone who knows before I send one back.
Also, since I’m posting: do I need a layer of cotton batting if I’m using foam? Iv seen videos of both methods ( I believe the cotton was correct for up to 70, but some people do burlap, felt, batting, foam on 71-72 also?)
Iv saved a lot of info of this site for building seats (this sites members are a great source of info) but if anyone has any links, info, advice I’d appreciate it as this is my first go at this!
