Worked on the rear seat spring set today.
Used a large pair of side cutters to roll the hog rings out.
Marked spring sets for orientation and row numbering.
Found the burlap bags were a continuous sheet of pockets and that reinforcement rods were passed trough them front to rear.
I cut the old bag material on the red lines that I painted for orientation and alignment.
I'll need to open the metal frame chanel at each rod location and insert the rods through the new burlap bags as I reassemble.
Also wire brushed rusty areas ( thank you little gray fuzzy critters) and coated areas with RustMort in preparation for a repaint
Here's some pictures of todays progressAttach file
