My front seat springs on my '13 Touring had been replaced years ago with some craptastic generic covering. I decided to replace that covering with a cushion from Classtique. I rebuilt the wood frame with Kwik Poly, and am now ready to put it all back together. I know I need to compress the springs, but I don't know how much. Currently the back of the springs are 5 inches thick, and the front is 8 inches thick. What should be the thickness after I compress it down?
The seats in our 21 Touring are 4 to 5 inches thick. If you are a 21st century size person you may want to make them a little thinner. It makes it easier to get in and out. When I recently redid the upholstery, I made wire clips to hold the springs to the thickness I wanted.
