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
