seat pads

thank you for the assistance last week on interior colors. i have ordered leather interior from gahh (seats, door panels, seatbacks, convertible deck, etc). plan to have it this week, and work on it this weekend. although i can't really say there is a problem with the seats pads - the leather itself is dried, cracked, and taring, so i'm guessing that maybe i should just plan on replacing the pads. i really don't want to get seats ripped apart, and then have to order and wait for new pads. comments on this aspect?

and if i decide to get new pads, any suggestions as to going with horsehair, rubberized, and/or which vendor? are seatbacks generally okay, and just the bottoms?

I'd go with the original MB pads, the rubberized horse hair pads. And if the seat bottoms are in that condition, you'll probably need to replace the pads. It's only a couple hundred dollars extra. If you've already forked out the cash for the new skins, you might as well.

Did you ever replace the seat pads? If so, where did you find them?
Several places sell pads - google for horsehair pads Mercedes 107. There's also a thread here that details replacing your upholstery.
