For the buckets (especially the driver's)... you have the opportunity to make it "better" than it was from the factory at this point. I like the poly that you used. Good call. I did a burlap over the springs (double layer of burlap, then i did Poly (a double as well) and THEN the foam. Here's why. The poly will slip, or... NOT "stick" to the backing of the vinyl seat covers that well. It will allow it to travel, if that makes sense. But, it's on the rear, so it shouldn't make much difference. I reused the foam in the rear as well. Good call.
The front seat buns from PUI are excellent. The channel between the bolstering is thick and hard to get through when hog ringing the seat covers through the foam to the seat springs but well worth the effort.
Glad it's all working out for you.
And theres no way i made a lumpy mattress!! HA!!! My Dad had high expectations and was a perfectionist. He saw what Sealy, Beautyrest, Simmons, and the others were doing and improved on the idea. But... I digress! Truth is, i spent a lot of my time making custom inner spring beds for boats, yachts, basketball players (long story.. but there's a few out there in the 80s that HAD to have a round bed and they were nearly 7 feet tall men.)
Anyway, glad to hear it's all coming together and don't worry about the wrinkles around the speaker. After you do your buckets, you can pull the rear back off, and you'll see where you need to pull and hog ring to take the wrinkles out. Easy Peasy.
