Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Touring Seat Springs - Fit?

Does anyone have good pictures of how the seat backs for the touring car (mines a 1916 Fisher Body) are supposed to fit? My old springs are above the back of the seat and pushing back over the top. This causes the covering to come un-tacked. Going to put new covers on new seat back springs this season.

Thank you.

Here is a new one. The back of the rear seat is never seen because the top is permanently screwed to it and secured by the metal strip. If the top were removed, it would look much like the front.

The top boot even back then looks like the same problem we have with new boots today...like stretching an ants ass over a rain barrel! Can't anyone give us just a bit of slack in these so we don't have to pull so hard on 'em things start to tear?
