Well I put the old pad on the frame and it took all of 5 mins to get the seat cover back on. all the holes lined up and it went on easy.
Grube guy; I tried everything from tieing the springs down and having my son stand on it. The pad will not fit or I cannot get it to fit either way it is going back to German Auto tops and I will use the old pad. Its is not that bad.
The real problem with the seat back is that two of the screws that hold that back to the bottom have sheared off. Both of the middle ones so the seat back was kind of pivoting and that's why I was getting the movement in the seat back. I thought the pad had broken down.
So I drilled out the screw and nut replaced it with a hardened bigger bolt and now its all back together and looking good.
thanks guys for the sugestions
