Rear bench hold downs

Looking for information, ideally the parts, or photos of what holds the rear bench seat down in my 1939 Packard Six. Previous owner used parts of a conduit clamp. There are two places just below the seat where something was, but no idea what. Looks like it goes into the ~1" diameter holes in the bottom of the seat frame. Any assistance is greatly appreciated

Excellent input everyone, thank you ! Some of my research indicated some restorers using a dry graphite paint that is quite durable. Others just used POR 15 (of which I think is fine for the exterior of the springs but not the rubbing side

1939 Packard SIX Leaf Springs

I am in the process of replacing the 6 leaf spring bushings on my 39 Six. Since it will be a quick task to remove the springs, I plan on taking them off, cleaning them and painting them. I noticed what appears to be remnants of some material between the leaf's. What is that material and anyone have a source for it?

How's the bushing in the distributor, worn? Vacuum advance plate free and not bouncing back and forth? My 39 had rough idle, found two things, bushing in distributor was shot and someone had removed the vacuum diaphragm
advance spring which allowed the breaker plate to wobble

No stripped threads, definitely tightening

There is a thick lock washer there now. I'll look today to see if there is room for a flat or if the nut could bottom out. I am going to replace the existing lock washer with a fresh one in case it is "tired".

Thanks for the thought

Upholstery staple base
#10

On the bottom of my seats, and portions of the headliner, is a black strip of what appears to be tar impregnated paper that the upholstery staples go into

I recall reading somewhere that someone used industrial strength adhesive to lay down a bead and once dry, wsa used to hold the staples and it worked as well as the paper.

Anyone have any experience with using this type of adhesive in lieu of the black tar impregnated paper? I can see how it could definitely work, just trying to choose the adhesive. It would have to dry so as not to be brittle when a staple hit it as it would otherwise shatter
