seat padding renewal/refurbishing
What is the general consensus regarding replacement of seat padding in older models? While the rest of the car is in amazing condition (only 27000 original miles), the seat padding has pretty much disintegrated, leaving the springs to dig into your back.
Is it better to replace the seat padding with the horsehair, or is a newer material (i.e. foam padding) more suitable? I'm trying to keep the car as original as possible...are there seat insert/kits made for the perforated seats in the Benzes? I'm trying to keep to seats from looking like overstuffed chairs...
