Help, My Seat's too High!

I just got done re-doing the driver's seat on my 71 B. I used parts from 
Moss: foams, diaphragm, and seat upholstery kit. I used a diaphragm instead 
of webbing because the original seat had a diaphragm. Now my seat is TOO 
HIGH! My legs are pressing against the steering wheel. I can't drive the car 
this way! Before the renovation, I had a very comfortable fit. I'm only 5'8" 
so it's not my physique that's the problem. The new parts don't look that 
much different. But, I noticed the new foam is stiffer. Also the new 
diaphragm is way, way, way tighter than the original one. It seems more like 
plastic than rubber and does not want to stretch. The little embedded metal 
bars that the hooks attach to bent into V's under the strain. Has anybody 
else run into this problem? Does Moss have a Email address?
