Doug, it's actually fairly straightforward - just get a dry cleaning bag (they
type they give you over hanging clothes) and slip that over the foam cushion.
Then, slip the cover it - it will slide right on, since the bag prevents
binding on the foam. Then, rip out as much as you can before you glue the cover
on. I used 3M spary adhesive. WARNING! Wear eye protection when you spray into
the area,as it will blowback!
I did my '65 B's seats with no problems using this method.

Dear MG people,
I am finally installing the leather upholstery. The bottoms weren't a
problem, but the backs have me concerned. I've taped the card backing
onto the frame and the foam cushion seams very oversized. In my "DIY
Guide" by Porter they are using a newer car with 'fitted' cushions. My
cushion is just a flat piece of foam with an extra pad at the lower
back, with edging. I purchased this from Moss. Moreover the seat
cover (Mike Satur) look like they will be a tight fit over the frame.
And with an oversized cushion, this looks like a big mess.
How do I get the cushion to stay on the frame while I'm pulling the new
leather cover over it? Can I tape it? Glue it? Some combination
