Subaru plaid seat recover

I'm finally getting around to seat rebuilding and recovering.  My skills at seat recovering have become acceptable on moped seats, so I'm going to give this a shot.  Speaking of shot, the foam in these seats is crap, so I'll be cutting new foam, which is going to make my usual method of making a pattern of the old seat cover less effective because the foam will be different.  I am trying to find a good plaid fabric to do the inserts with, I think I've got a hold of some on Ebay that should work out.  JoAnne's fabrics didn't have any that I liked, and we have no trim shop in Lafayette, so I might end up getting foam from JoAnne's.  The springs seem very springy still and look to be in good shape, I don't think I need to replace them, but I might add one or two more to help get rid of sag.
